Tapping finger automates being impatient

Here's a beautifully crafted hand-cranked automaton of a human hand, impatiently tapping its index finger.
It was created by sculptor Chris Eckert. Link


  1. Truly gorgeous. It’d also be cool if the hand-cranking could ‘wind’ it so that it could continue past the time of being cranked- is it truly an automaton if it requires constant input?

    But aside from that, gorgeous! I love the translucency of the nails and the detailing. The bronze ‘joint’ is perfect.
