Shot in the old town of Bhaktapur, Nepal

Many marionettes which had four arms and two faces were hung in a storefront of a souvenir shop. One of them had a long nose. It looked like a Ganesha, a deity in Hinduism. If it was so, other figures might be also deities.

At the time of the shooting, I thought what was hung by strings were just marionettes though, I remembered that this city was famous for the puppets. So they might be puppets. Anyway, they started to swing when the wind blew.
