To get a hold on the wealth of material on South Pointing Chariots, three
basic kinds of models can be defined:
The "classic" model to most people, they resemble the real (or imagined)
thing as close as possible, only at a reduced size. Visit
our gallery !
In our modern times modeling no longer means cut fingers and glue on the
carpet, but bits and bytes on floppy disks and animations on the computer
screen. See what we found yet !
Many a technical system is better understood if stripped down to the elementary,
leaving away all the distracting details or even turning to transparent
material. To understand a differential gear, this approach proves especially
advantageous. Have a look yourself !
Not so Functional Specimen...
It's an old saying that things not working as intended can still be sold
as "Art" - THEIR words, not mine ! Well, now and then an artist discovers
the South Pointing Chariot and incorporates it into his/her opus. Let
Your imagination flow !
