- Curator's comments
- Contextualisation: This shadow puppet character would have been used in a Karagiosis (Greek shadow theatre) performance.
Character: It is unclear why the character is named 'Ahmed Pasha' in the inscription, and whether or not this is in fact a different character to that of the traditional 'Pasha' or 'Vezir'
