This work was designed for an exhibition with the theme, “Karakuri Experiments”.
There is a round flask on the top of a pedestal, and eight different symbols on each side of the pedestal. It's a recipe of alchemy.
After you solve the mystery of the eight symbols, the drawer will open.
You have to follow the creator's intended procedure accurately. There are some parts inside the mechanism that move easily, so it won’t open if you make a wrong move. Please try to solve with the image of not spilling the liquid in the flask, by holding it flat after each step.
