The Wedding at Cana mechanical glass theater in Motion

This extraordinary lampworked scene is a rare survivor of animated scenes made in the mid-18th century, which were created for public amusement. The scene depicted is believed to be of the Wedding at Cana. The heads and limbs of each figure are lampworked in glass, and are moved by levers and pulls on the outside wall of the theater.
