Any Name Automata
I've just recently stumbled upon several automata. How very cool. This one is a little sexy. A stunning and unique automata, based on the theme of women and tattooing. Made from solid copper etched front, back and sides with photographic images related to tattooing in the early 20th century. Inside is a resin-set image of a woman and when the handle is turned a tattoo is added, or removed, from her bare back.
I assume this thing moves because it has gears. OMG, how creepy it must look when it walks!!! It is fascinating, though!
This whimsical folk art toy by Dan Torpey is the perfect stress relief for those moments when you'd like to stick your tongue out but can't. Just press the button and the doll will do it for you.
