The WindKutsche resembles a roman chariot. In the stead of a warrior, a tower with a rotor is standing on the axis. The rotation is transmitted by a chain to the head, where an excenter moves a free hanging stick up and down. With the help of this stick the chariot moves stilting against the wind. When the stick has no contact to the ground it is pushed by the wind a little backwards. Than the stick goes down and lifts the head. Now the hole sculpture is standing on the instable stick and two weels. In this way, the sculpture stumbles against the wind.
