Joachim Friess, Diana and the Stag, automaton, silver, silver gilt, jewels & enamel, c.1620, Metropolitan Museum of Art

1610 - automaton and clock. This incredible automaton features a beautiful clock underneath the skull cap. Over the course of a few minutes the mandible opens, then snaps shut all of a sudden. The snakes in two eye sockets alternately emerge and retreat. Created in 1610 by Nicolaus Schmidt der Junger
