I am truly flattered that my original Machini The Marvel performing the Transmutative Hat has been recreated by a talented special-effects artist named Dorian based in Madrid, Spain. He has made some modifications -- four objects rather than six and a cloth coat. Check out all the details he has added. I like the addition of the back wall to set the scene.
Visit Dorian's Blog to see other photos of the piece he as titled Automata Transmutador. Pretty cool!
