Iranian Puppet Show Looks Fairly Badass Actually

Their puppet program seems to be much more advanced than their nuclear program. Here are photos of a rather elaborate (and apparently violent) puppet show based on the life of 14th century Persian poet Hafez. Looking forward to Spike Jones' “Being Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.”

Puppets are used during a rehearsal for a performance based on the Iranian poet Hafez's life story at Ferdowsi Hall in central Tehran, March 6, 2012.
