"On foot and by rod" puppet

Ces marionnettes ont une base (ou pied), dans laquelle une tige est insérée. Celle-ci permet de déplacer les figures en suivant les fentes, ou glissières, ménagées dans le plancher de scène. Il s'agit donc d'une technique de manipulation dite « inférieure » ou « par le bas ».

This is the second opera created by La Grille with the Troupe Royale des Pygmées, in November 1676. On the title page of the printed copy kept at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the word "tragédie" is crossed out and replaced by "pastorale".
