Mechanical Crib

The small crib in the photo is in fact a mechanical one. The crib was built by Tony Pace and can be viewed at Tony Pace’s residence in Safi. Fore more information send an email to: pacetoni@gmail.com

A man draws water from  a well, a farmer digs soil, an angel goes up and down, a windmill’s sails  go round, oxen till the soil, a streamlet… these can all be seen in the crib.  

watch the mechanical crib by means of a video clip on You Tube >>>>>>>>

Tony Pace got this idea after watching his late father Lonzu, a ex-Dockyard shipwright, doing a similar task. Lonzu Pace used to display his mechanical crib in St Mary Street Gudja Malta.
