Back in 2006 I designed this Big Bean Goose for my friend Hal Faruta of Molen Co. The Big Bean Goose is the symbol of the Japanese city Agano, near to where Hal-san lives. He commissioned me to designed the model on behalf of the Agano district.

Hal-san has a fabulous collection of automata from all sorts of makers, check out his Instagram Feed here. It’s full of wondrous pictures and animations.
