|Animatronic Dr Mirakel and Butler - the Spirit of Salzburg Museum, Salzburg||January 2004|
In partnership with Gems Display Figures.
The figures were to bring to life the story that at a time when Salzburg was in a bad way financially, Dr Mirakel arrived there with a walking cane and a small box containing a crystal ball and proceeded to revitalize everything.
The 'Butler' was to welcome guests to some function, reading their names from a list and moving his finger down the list.
When I checked on the web for details and date for the story there was nothing, did The Spirit of Salzburg Museum make it up?
Dr Mirakel had a silicone skinned head on an articulated neck, moving mouth, moving eyes and a jointed arm so he could gesture with his cane.
The 'Butler' had a silicone skinned head on an articulated neck, moving mouth, and an articulated wrist so he could move his finger down the list of guests.
The Spirit of Salzburg Museum was next to the Mozart museum, but it didn't last long. When I went to Salzburg in 2008 it had shut.
