Elegant in design, it comes with the vast array of accessories listed down below. This is truly a one-of-a-kind find you do not want to miss!

In 1927, Metropolis was released, a landmark film in cinema history not only because of the subject matter or the cost to produce the film (approximately 3 million dollars, the most expensive film made at the time), but because of the set design and the creation of the Maschinenmensch robot by Walter Schulze-Mittendorff. His creation was a beautiful work of art, reflecting the art-deco movement at the time, and was one of the first robots ever depicted in film. Mittendorff’s robot design still infatuates those seeing it for the first time, and the robot can stand alone as a majestic statue to sit proudly on anyone’s mantelpiece or table without them knowing it was from a film.
