Waving Buddha  (2 of 19)

Turning a crank on the center of this piece makes the Buddha’s hand wave. The hand is inside behind the glass. There is a small Buddha, also waving from behind the glass that appears and disappears.

There are 2 levers on this piece, which offer a choice. Choosing one activates a loud buzzer and flashes a red light on the top of the piece. Choosing the other opens the main chamber hidden behind the carved face revealing a straw mask. There are also small, lighted compartments to be discovered and one cast iron foot at the base.
