The Victoria & Albert Museum
Polichinelle is seen in the proscenium opening going about his typical business of smacking an adversary with a stick. An unusual portrayal, Polichinelle is shown as a rod puppet hanging in front of the booth suspended by a rod from his head. By this point in puppet history, Punch, Polichinelle and Guignol were usually glove puppets, not marionettes or rod puppets.
His hump is hollowed out, likely as a receptacle for wax tapers or spills.
