Sharmanka

This is just one example of the handmade-from-scrap models in the Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre. The theatre’s wikipedia page says it’s like “Hieronymous Bosch meets Heath Robinson”. It made me think at the time “Tim Burton meets Banksy in a scrap yard, with lots of vodka”. Each model does its thing in turn, accompanied by a range of music from Russian drinking songs to Scottish folk music. It’s really fantastic!
