Jason Arkles was an accomplished puppeteer in the States. When he didn’t get into a special training program in France, he decided to go to Europe anyways. While there, he became enchanted by a beautiful woman named Ana. Jason joined Ana’s troupe of street performers. In fact, he sold all his worldly possessions to follow her. It was this gaggle of odd-balls that lead Jason to his true calling as a sculptor - and a dream job in Florence that he holds to this day.
