Mr Punch Automaton of Proverbs 19 v 3

I bought a wonderful little catalogue from an exhibition that Sam Smith had in the London Serpentine Gallery in 1980. Thank you Amazon UK. It was so inspiring it made me want to try a more 3D, pieced together approach to building figures. 

So for the next Proverb I have experimented with a slightly different look. It has turned out to be a bit larger than intended but has some elements that I will develop further. I also found a Sam Smith website.

Proverbs 19 verse 3
A man's own folly ruins his life,
yet he rages against the Lord.

I think that filming this in action may explain it better.
I also want to make more cats, oh dear!

Caroline these are absolutely brilliant. Go on, make more cats because he's a scene stealer for sure.
