When you wind the handle, the shark’s tale fin swims backwards and forwards, and the sharks mouth opens and devours the swimmer (the first 4 pics show the action/movement as you wind the handle).

This piece is handcrafted and 15.5cm high.
The small plaque says “Shark Baiting”.

A truly unusual piece of automata, created by the Lost Gypsy Gallery (Blair Somerville) from Papatowai, NZ.
