"marionnettes" Iwaki Sports & Outdoors Tip by manuelEB

Iwaki Sports & Outdoors: 21 reviews and 21 photos


maybe there is not god... maybe there is not destiny, but at this point we start to feel like marionettes...

According to legend, marionettes got their name during the Middle Ages when puppeteers would present the Christmas Story. The most admired character in these Nativity Scenes was always the little string puppet that represented the Virgin Mary. People began calling this type of puppet "Little Mary" or in French, "Marionette".

Watch out! You never know when you are going to bump into some little trivia.
