Automaton bird plays hide-and-seek with a caterpillar

I can’t say much about who made this piece other than the maker is Tetsu Yamakami . Most of the text in the video appears to be Japanese. The piece itself is wonderful. From the carving, to selection of wood types, and distinctive pegged wood frame, it’s all nicely done. I particularly like the use of sound — a bird call — to bring the piece to life.

Thanks to philsing for help with the artist’s name!
