Here are some unfinished parts of marionettes for a music video for the band Japanther.
the fingers on these hands articulate and the two forefingers are on a pull string to close. A link to the youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOjJhQ0cjLc
Here are the finger segments removed. the wire is spring steel to straighten the finger when the pull string is relaxed.
The hands attached to the finger pull mechanism.
This is a creepy daemon-pimp.
