Switzerland

“the artist-designer Rene Creux has turned wit into a powerful teacher. Dominating the interior for instance is an immense mechanical bird, wings flapping and wheels cranking as its sole passenger, William Tell, yodels Swiss folk songs and strews alpine flowers over all visitors. The animated, mechanical man and his winged, mechanical steed both symbolize and spoof Switzerland’s acknowledged genius for mechanical precision and technological progress.” (HemisFair Guidebook, 1968)
