The twittering birds learn to fly

Inspired by the Paul Klee work called “The twittering machine” and Leonardo da Vinci’s helicopter and parachute designs; I combined these with a corkscrew and the central mechanism of egg beaters to come up with an imaginary machine designed to teach orphaned birds to fly.
You turn the corkscrew handle which winds the egg beater mechanism until the machine spins slowly and detaches from the tree to float softly to the ground.  The idea is to place the birds on the platform and when it starts spinning, the will be scared and jump off, prompting them to learn how to fly…similar to a mother pushing them from a nest.
Totally fictious and non practical but fun. This is my final work for 2d drawing for this semester.
