Does anyone know how to set this thing up?3 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
I assume it uses 2 4-string crosses, one for each hand, but i dont know which strings go where to make it usable.
One pair of strings carry its weight, on the rump and a bit above the base of the neck. Then two strings on the sides of the head and one string for each leg.
Its a great hand-made piece and even though someone's glued the head on solid, i'm hopeful i can dissolve the glue and restore the head motion, and it has all its major wooden pieces.
Edit: the head can't share the same control that goes to neck n rump cuz that would prevent the ability to lift the head so i'm thinking the neck n rump hand would have maybe the rear legs and the head n front hoofs go in the other hand? That way the only motion thatd be prevented is raising both rears at the same time, which could be accomplished by lowering the puppet onto the ground. If the head is on adjacent control points instead of diagnally across, then the head or front hoofs could be raised independently. Any thoughts?
This is my new favorite thing, its just so wonderful. I want it usable.

Thrift. This similar style of construction one is described as turn of century but strung completely different.>>771551
Thats what i was thinking. The front cross could be all equal lengths or possibly 2 long and 2 short as opposed to the rear's standard one-longer shape to distinguish them.
The strings on opposite sides of head rather than crown/snout could be a clue as to intended setup or just to keep a string out of the face.
There might be a completely different way with the rump string alone on rear cross and neck string in center of front cross etc, will take some experimenting maybe to produce best results.>>771524
