Description In 1908 before building Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a puppet theatre for his youngest son, Llewellyn. An adaptation of a passage from Richard Harvey's Taliesin: A Masque reads, "To Fashion worlds in little--Making form as God does one with Spirit--So God makes use of poets." This model was built for Wright's exhibition at the Chicago Architectural Club in 1914. Taylor Woolley was invited back to Taliesin at that time to help Wright with the preparations.
Comment Taylor Woolley was a Utah architect who worked under Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin I (c. 1911-1914) at Spring Green Wisconsin during its initial construction.
