Also known as the Jester or Jolly, is an ambiguous and light character, who is very adept in his ability to poke fun at the public virtues and private vices of the court, royal family, and people in general. Considered crazy, the cool lucidity and sharp satire of the Joker is seldom taken seriously. Nevertheless, in times of crisis, the veiled wisdom of the Jokers insight on political and personal matters was often sought. This marionette stands approximately 21" (53cm) tall.
