In Pharaoh´s times: While the peasant is irrigating his field with the shaduf, his wife is preparing the meal. On a millstone the wheat is grinded to flour and gathered in a basket.

This model is inspired by a mechanical toy from the age of the ancient Egyptians. But at that time the miller was moved by a string. Now the rotation of the crank is transformed into the motion of the upper part of the body by an oscillating lever.
