This mechanical horse consists of 221 art pieces that achieve a series of lifelike movements using a variety of clever mechanisms. Cranks, gears, wheels, cams, and linkages are used to mimic the simple flowing beauty found in nature.
As the crank is turned, the horse springs to life, galloping along. Each of the legs moves independently, while the head reaches into the wind and the tail flows out behind.
Detailed, full-color instructions guide the builder through each step of construction. The kit is laser cut from select hardwoods and cabinet grade plywood. It is beautifully detailed and has been designed to create a heirloom piece that you will be proud to display for years to come.
