I ‘Jackie-cotted’ The Opening Ceremony of the Beijing Olympics because it was too painful to watch that gargantuan torch burn continuously as the world faces a perpetual energy crisis. And it was to burn for the duration of the 3-week event. However, if you DID watch, then you may have seen these two marionettes in a performance. Apparently, it was incredible. They are huge. Hand-made. The actual ones. The real deals. At the Terra-cotta museum.
