French filmmaker FKY documented the latest stunning performance by Royal de Luxe, a puppet theater company notorious for its giant marionettes. Three puppets–a girl, a man, and a dog–descended on Nantes, France in May for a three day street performance. The main character, Little Giant, is an 18 foot tall, 1700 pound girl puppet operated from a crane. Her hair is made from the tails of 70 horses.
