"The Christ Unlimited figures and the Rocking Machine were not designed especially for A Clockwork Orange. They formed part of my studio work at the time, and, after seeing them there, Kubrick wanted to use them for the film because they probably had the futuristic look he and his wife wanted.

Christ Unlimited was inspired by a crucified Christ statuette that I had found . The left arm and both legs from the waist down had been broken off. I replaced them in a more joyous pose - that of a dancer in the midst of a popular folk dance from the Balkans and the Middle East, known as The Butchers Dance."
