Aslan

Today Chandler Creek had a special visit from Aslan the Lion!  Aslan (and his handlers) are currently performing in Prince Caspian at the Logos Theater in Taylors, SC.  Aslan is a unique puppet in that he is life size, human operated and is one of only three lion puppets of his kind in the world.  He is the only one in the United States and was handmade by artists at the Logos theater and The Academy of Arts.  The Logos theater also has two other similar puppets, a dragon and a horse.  Students enjoyed seeing Aslan move and learned how his handlers observed videos of real lions to refine his motions and made him more realistic.
