After more than five years of documentation, study and development, Xavier Tapias has been able to do the famous Robert Houdin's automaton: Antonio Diavolo.
Limited Edition signed and numbered by the author.
Build absolutely handmade from Xavier Tapias.
This reproduction is similar from the original one. The routine and the performance are identical. The internal mechanisms are made with high quality electronics .
As the original, it's presented free in our arms and is placed on the trapeze. There, it becomes alive and makes a baud and answer questions moving the face saying yes or no.
Step by step, Antonio begins his exercises on the trapeze, each time more, and more complicated.
Finally he releases his hands from the trapeze in a risky exercise. Once his acrobatic exercise routine is finished, we take him in our arms to bow.
All the parts will be signed and numbered by Xavier Tapias
