This Lehmann "Skirolf" is convincing in its motions and drive. With a perfectly working wind-up/clockwork mechanism this automaton is so special because it operates by thrusts of the ski poles and not by wheels directed on the floor as it was common in the 1930s. This is a fascinating example of the engineering progress of the time - The movements performed by the automaton in a striking way resemble the real skier movements. His name probably derived from a productive encounter between Johannes Richter, who managed the Lehmann business then, and Rolf Wiborg Thune, a ski manufacturer.
