Sheep Shearing Man automaton

This brilliant automaton was designed by Ron Fuller. As the handle is turned, the sheep uses the scissors to try and shear the man’s hair. However, each time it tries, the man ducks down below the scissors. Nevertheless, after about ten attempts, the man leaves it too late to duck and his head is chopped off. The cycle then repeats.
