A brown paper bag puppet used in "Que Sura la Basura," a production by Teatro de los Niños. They were the first Chicano theater group in the United States with children performers. This was performed at Hollenbeck Park in Boyle Heights. This paper bag puppet has a face with a big painted opened mouth and patterned paper cups taped to the top of it's head. The lower part of the puppet is painted in purple with a black framed circle in the center. In that circle are two words but only the word "united" can be read.
