"Torquemada's Nocturna" 2004
A whimsical journey into the mindset of the self-righteous "pious" inquisitor. The figures inside this piece are about 8" or less in size and it all functions through the use of a hand cranked mechanism, cams, levers, gears, chains and sprockets, (apparently controlled by a little gremlin) allowing the viewer to dictate the pace and interact. The figure sculptures, the mechanisms, engineering, machining, painting and clothing and even the custom arabesque case were all made by Thomas Kuntz on each of the pieces in the edition.
This edition sold out instantly.
