Sculpted miniature landscapes by Kendal Murray
Kendal Murray’s miniature sculptures stage dream-like narratives that are played out by microscopic identities with giant personalities. Short stories and tall tales are enacted in a range of playful and dramatic scenarios that are imbued with social, symbolic and personal meaning. Glass teapots, grass-covered purses, mirrored makeup compacts and open books set the stage for each scenario, offering the delight of the unexpected, the puzzle of a question and the possibility of a dream escape into make-believe worlds.

Mechanical Devil (1400s)
Displayed at Applied Arts Collections Museum in the Sforza Castle in Milan, Italy, this automaton is carved from wood. From the Wunderkammer of Ludovico Settala.
You could make these mechanical devils stick their tongues out, howl, and make creepy faces by turning the device.
