Dutch sculptor Herman Makkink's works entered popular consciousness after his phallic "rocking machine" was featured in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant and controversial 1971 film A Clockwork Orange.

For the first time since 1969, the sculptor's sexually charged Rocking Machine has been reproduced in limited quantities and is for sale through a private auction conducted by the artist himself.

Cast in fiberglass from the original mold, only six have been produced, each signed by the artist. Even if you're not about to purchase a Makkink original, this site still has a lot of art featured, including animation of the Rocking Machine in action.
