Hammered and oxidized gilt (gold leaf gilding) brass automaton : a man seated under a palm tree on a deserted island.
The automaton is automatically activated when someone approaches. You can hear the sea. The figure raises his head, stands up, speaks and waves his arms. After a short while, he sits down again.
