Automata are whimsical mechanical toys that have a cool, life-like movement when their crank is turned. This dragon flaps its wings, and kicks its legs up and down, while the head, neck and tail move in a graceful motion as it soars through the sky!
Dragons have long captured the imagination of people around the world. In early legends with the likes of Typhon, the most deadly monster of Greek mythology, to the modern-day dragons like Saphira from Eragon, and Smaug in the Hobbit, we have loved and reviled dragons for their loyalty and fierceness. This automaton brings centuries of dragon lore to life in a cool 3D moving model.
