Here is an automaton by Dave Goodchild, made in 2005. The automaton depicts a magician performing the classic 'different items appearing from under a top hat' routine -- in this instance, a rabbit, a dove, a banana, and then finally a miniature version of the magician himself performing the trick. Very recursive! Magicians and historians should note the small red imp whispering into the conjuor's ear, a common trope in in advertising posters for magic shows in the 1800s. Bravo!
