Here is a new piece by Tom Haney based on the Kahlil Gibran quote, "When I wrote on my door: "Leave your traditions outside, Before you come in," Not a soul dared to visit me or open my door." The motor-driven figure slowly opens the door, peers out, then retreats the way he came.
The piece is part of the 100 Artists Show At Mary Lou Zeek Gallery in Salem, OR. All the pieces in the show are up for auction and the proceeds will be donated to a local charity. The bidding is done by phone only. As of last weekend this piece was up to just over $1000. It retails for far more than that; this is a rare chance for those seeking to acquire a Tom Haney automaton. Bidding on this piece ends at 5pm February 24th. The number to call is 503-581-3229.
You can get more information about the automaton and see video of it in action on Tom Haney's blog.
