SpooMonkey automaton by Pascale Michalski

Take a simple mechanism, some ceramic-like sculpting compound, and brilliant execution and what do you get? The SpooMonkey automaton shown here by artist Pascale Michalski. I love it!

From the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre site:
The first edition of automata from Pascale Michalski. SpooMonkey, which is short for “Spooky Monkey”, has been trapped in his cage for an eternity. His only amusement is making his bells tintinnabulate repeatedly. His haggard body tries to break out, but fails at it miserably again and again...

Here's the full page about the SpooMonkey automaton.
