The Butterfly is not a static stand model, but an animated kinetic sculpture.
Each of its details designed to make sure it fits its own place and plays its own part in the workings of this outstanding mechanism.
Equipped with a rubber-band motor, the mechanical automaton moves imitating the flutter of a butterfly with no external power source or batteries.
You will build your new model out of ready-made details that come precisely pre-cut in high quality natural plywood boards.
Slightly pushed, the details easily pop out of the board.
The process of assembly is described in a comprehensive step-by-step instruction manual with detailed colour illustrations The size of the assembled model is 290 x 550 x 400 mm. The set includes 161 details.
The lower wings change their tilt angle when the model is working to ensure that the movements of the automaton resemble those of a real butterfly.
The elastic support slightly bounces the model, making its movements more realistic so that The Butterfly dances and flutters in the air approaching the flower.
We want the complex and beautiful world of mechanics to become closer and more comprehensive.
This is why the body of The Butterfly is designed in a skeleton-style, which allows you to see the working of gears and blocks inside and understand how the mechanism works.
