Whether it’s being powered by a hand crank or a motor, this Sisyphus LEGO kinetic sculpture by LEGO artist Jason Allemann is impressive, from the smooth movement of the figure’s body to the myth-driven depictions on the base. Especially excellent: The base opens to reveal the sculpture’s inner mechanics. Allemann was inspired by a Disney Research Computational Design of Mechanical Characters video, and set out to make a realistic motion kinetic sculpture of his own.
