The night gives birth to dreams… Probably a familiar cliché, although a bit lyrical.
Within a childish, but with many symbolisms, novel, a marionette wants to become a boy.
And through many trials, although he loses his immortality, he succeeds.
On the other hand, who did not want to become a marionette in order to be able to keep his immortality?
The Rock/Metal stars have certainly passed into immortality, still alive, through the songs and the admiration of their fans.
But in quarantine times, someone thought of adding a little more… immortality.
As you know in times of confinement, craftsmanship reigns, as long as your hands “got this” along with some good ideas can do miracles.
Speaking of which, there is no more beautiful craft than making marionettes.
The reasons are many, as are the symbolisms of such a construction.
If the Geppeto of the famous book was a metalhead, what would his only expensive creation Pinocchio be like?
The name “Geppeto” has been given as a nickname to himself a real metalhead from the country of Canada.
This is Darren Moreash from Harrisfield, Nova Scotia, who runs a business called “Darrionettes-Hard Rock marionettes.”
Metal and highly Rock puppets …
Of course, he does not make dolls that look like Pinocchio, nor do they grow their noses.
Some of the characters may have big noses, but that’s another story.
So, the literal “Master Of Puppets” has not only made the puppet of James Hetfield but also our other favorite musicians.
Among them we find:
Ronnie James Dio, Chuck Schuldiner, Lemmy Kilmister, Venom, Rob Halford, James Hetfield, Ozzy, Eddie Van Halen, Alice Cooper, and many more.
With some, he even managed to be photographed and some others sent him pictures cuddling with their marionettes.
And for that reason, the photographic proofs… and our nose is just … naturally… big!
