Bateau Pêcheur - Fishing
Pellerin Nr.55, 1871
Size: 15 X 7.5 x 21 cm
A ship's carpenter moves the axe, a fishing boat rocks on the waves.
Falling sand moves a paddlewheel. A cogwheel and a cam are fastened on
its shaft. The cam raises and lowers a lever which is glued on the same shaft
as the carpenter's arm. So the rotation is transformed into the oscillating
movement of the arm. The cogwheel moves a cam which causes the oscillating
movement of the fishing boat.
