Now, here's a fellow who works best under pressure...steam pressure. The future Victorian Auto Maitre D from the infamous steampunk inventor Doctor Grordbort aka. the New Zealand artist Greg Broadmore. I'd seen this creation in one of his early books, but now it seems they have built a full-sized version which is on display at the Weta studio. I really wish they would make some smaller models for sale, as I love the bronze color of this mechanical man.
"The highly obedient and ingraciating Automaitre D by Crowe and Sons.
An artificial manservant that will impress and astound.
Your customers will be dazzled, amazed and not the least bit throttled
by this marvelous Automated Man. Have Winston tell Jarvis that his
services are no longer required...what!"
