    heh I made one of these a while ago, (although this one is much more beautiful) I love the simplicity of the mechanism!

    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.
