'I've indeed sat upon it, there are even photos to prove it, but really take a promenade... I don't think I'd dare... ' - Panamarenko

Panamarenko designed this insect-like machine on high aluminium legs, to enable him to walk around the Swiss mountains more easily. Crooked Leg is powered by a boat engine and is operated using two vertical levers on either side of the device. Panamarenko tested it out in December 1994 in a Flemish meadow.
