This Lion puppet was made in Sri Lanka of fabric designed by Barbara Sansoni. She was born in Kandi, educated in Celon and Southern India, and has been designing cloth inspired by the colors in Sri Lanka since the 1960s. Her store Barefoot opened in Colombo in the late 1960s. Each puppet is unique.
