Colossal human body parts captivated crowds on Monday (January 7) in Santiago's Plaza de Armas. A massive, free-roaming mouth, eye, and foot formed part of the 'Human Body Parts' performance from Australia's world renowned 'Snuff Puppets' puppet company. In addition to enthralling both children and adults alike, the surreal and interactive street performance also has an educational aspect. A quiet, blinking eye and an active and insatiable mouth are among the puppets that invite onlookers to think more about the unique functions of each featured human body part. The Melbourne-based company was founded in 1992 and has since gained international fame, performing its diverse repertoire of giant puppet shows in countries across the globe.
