Skeleton

Phantom Limb describes the skeleton puppet and his role:
The large black skeleton puppet will be operated by a person that is manually attached to the puppet itself. As the puppeteer walks, the skeleton walks, as the puppeteer bends, leaps, withdraws, they are constantly in unison with "death" as it leads the way.
