picture 45

I believe that this is a picture of the Turk that was reconstructed by the magician that I mentioned on the previous page. As you can see, there are a set of levers to move the turk as well as a space for someone to place a chess board to consider moves and then have the Turk play them. I hope I get to see this one day to see what it looks like in real life as opposed to just as a picture.
