Object Description
Black Gorilla with hinged legs. Has a blue face and detailed lines in the face and the chest.
Origin
Gorilla is not a traditional Karaghiozi character. Thianda Manzara (daughter) donated the puppets and accessories from the estate of Demetra Louvrie (1931-2001). Louvrie studied with her great-uncle John Katses (Halsted Street cafe performer),l George Kefalopoulos (radio host), and Frixos Gazepidis. Louvrie taught and presented shows of Karaghiozi puppeteering throughout Illinois.
