Of Angel and Puppet: Klee, Rilke, and the Test of Innocence

quote [ Built for his son from the scraps of daily life — matchboxes, beef bones, nutshells, and plaster — Paul Klee’s hand puppets harbour ghosts of human feelings, fragile communications from a world most adults have left behind. Kenneth Gross compares these enchanted objects to angelic figures, in Klee’s artworks and the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, helping us dance as well as wrestle with their visions of innocence. ]

Memo to myself: Do the dumb things I gotta do. Touch the puppet head.
