Note: This extraordinary, powerful figure was clearly meant to hold specific objects, but its history is not entirely clear at this time. It may well have been an advertising display or part of an exhibition. Those familiar with Jewish folklore may see a Golem, an imitation of a man magically imbued with life and consciousness, lacking a soul and the power of speech, fantastically strong, created to obey orders, but not always controllable.
