Well with a bit of finagling I managed to tuck the fairies wings into her back. I was so anxious to see how this was going to work out I didn't even finish carving her dress and body, or even put a head on her!
I am pleased with the final effect. I hope she can see where she is going without a head!
When my web editor gets the bugs out I'll post a video of the movement.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
