Animatronic talking Celt
'Setantii Tales of Tameside' museum Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire, England
March 2002
A complex animatronic figure with moving head and arms -
the skin is silicone and the mouth is animated to sync with the soundtrack,
the neck turns and nods,
the right arm is hinged at the elbow and shoulder with offset axis so compound moves are made,
the left arm is hinged at the elbow.

The figure was hidden behind a muslin screen until lit and welcomed visitors to the 'Setanti Tales of Tameside' museum.

The muslin screen which caused the video to be blurry.
