Hand puppets, like this one from China’s Zhejiang region, have been a popular form of entertainment for centuries. In the late-19th/early-20th century this tiny robed gentleman probably entertained throngs of people as he strolled the courtyards of miniature palaces or rescued maidens from undesirable suitors.
