Another Arabian-style fortune-teller with the same name as the one in the film.
Has nobody noticed that the eeriness of the original is in the mouth operation. His lower jaw is fixed, and the rest of his head opens!
That, and the music, is the essence of it.
Surely someone can re-create that.

A very good replica has already been made, with specially composed authentic music.

John Peterson took me to that store in Minneapolis called Kilroys that had the reproduction Zoltar shown above on display. Damn, what an incredible piece! And the only plans were made from movie stills. We got to look inside and out the thing and play it. The guy who made it had put it up for sale and I even tried to talk a local friend into buying it because I was so impressed with the time and careful effort put into building it. Was being offered for a fraction of what it would've cost to commision that guy to build it from scratch.
