Marionette Gallery 28 - Till Eulenspiegel

Till Eulenspiegel is the figure of a trickster. Most cultures have such a creation. It seem to cater for a deep cultural need. The person that questions the rules and plays tricks. Till is a figure from my cultural background in Germany. An early creation, probably 25 to 30 years ago. The stories around this person, based in the middle ages are fun and the humour goes down well even today. Usually I did two sketches for a show. Check it out on line, there is lots to be discovered. Oh yes his grave is in Moelln in northern Germany. But was he real?
