Master Po the Great Chinese Magician automaton

Here is a beautifully made automaton by Walter Zalewski. The piece features a Chinese magician doing a cups and balsl routine. The detail is lovely. The automaton is entirely hand-built -- figure and mechanism -- with hundreds of parts. Be sure to watch until the end of the video, where there is footage of the mechanism unclothed and moving. The mechanism is just a beautiful as the rest of the piece. Contact information for Walter Zalewski may also be found at the end of the video
