The puppet heads of Hokkien glove puppetry are exquisitely carved, with some carvers achieving a reputation for their fine workmanship. The index finger is inserted into the inner side of the puppet head which is hollow. The rest of the fingers are used to manipulate the puppet. For more delicate movements, sometimes a stick is inserted, which can allow the puppet to hold props. This set of puppets belong to Jit Guat Sin, currently the oldest Hokkien puppet troupe that was established since 1947. Their collection include both the glove and string puppets.
