Surprenant automate de Tim Hunkin au Pitt River Museum , Oxford.

Few days ago , I was in Pitt River Museum in Oxford, and looking for a napoleonic POW spinning jenny automaton, and what a surprise , I saw the Tim Hunkin collecting box automaton .
 After 20 years the automaton still works, congratulations Tim.

When a visitor approaches the collecting box, the wooden anthropologists inside rise up and point accusingly . When a coin is inserted the anthropologists lean over, a gesture originally intended as a bow, but appears more as if they are simply inspecting the donation.
