Description
One of the traditional methods of reciting praises in this country is to manipulate a marionette, in this case the skin with head and legs of a small civet cat. The animal was decorated with bead necklets and a small bell which can be heard during the recitation by the two men. The leader manipulated the civet cat with his hand inside the skin as a glove puppet. Winyi is one of the names of the Mukama, the king of Bunyoro (now Sir Winyi).
