Automata, with a history of more than 2,000 years, originated in Europe and means automatic mechanical devices, while Automata puppets use mechanical principles to give life and soul to wooden products, complete a series of actions and performances, and convey the designer's ideas to people at the same time. Emotions or ideas create a spiritual collision with the viewer. In addition, Automata puppets can have silent emotional communication with designers, which is also an emotional interaction. Wood material has the characteristics of warmth, simplicity and relaxation. Automata puppet products are more conducive to bringing spiritual comfort to high-pressure people in fast-paced life and relieving mental stress.
