If you have children or grandchildren at home, then a Taiwan glove puppet is the quintessential Taiwan treasure. A form of Chinese opera and one of Taiwan’s oldest cultural traditions, glove puppetry is still performed today as it relays stories of popular folklore that have been shared for centuries. Find Taiwan glove puppets and other lovely handcrafted items at the Puppetry Art Center of Taipei and Bu Diao (Chang Yi Fang). These make a delightful piece (or pieces!) for the avid collector of cultural art and craft.
