A Carrion Crow with his eye on someone’s finger

June 24, 2011 by · 1 Comment 

A new piece from Paul Spooner (2011)

This beady eyed crow blinks as the turning handle alerts him to the presence of your hand, which he then follows as it turns… brilliant device. The accompanying noise makes it all the more menacing.

A great piece from Carlos Zapata from 2001, which was part of a small edition.

Turn the handle and the oarsman vigorously rows with his single oar boat, down the Orinoco river. The piranha fish leap out of the water ahead of the boat, which is laden with gaily painted fruit and fish.
