Also on the table and resting on the lunar drawing another object begs for
attention. As the header indicates, I have no clear idea about what this
is. It is a box transparant on all sides. You can see clearly the sleeve
of the left arm of the man standing behind it. This would mean that is
either open or has glass panes on all sides. It covered on the top. The
box is mounted on a base that is extended on the side directed to the
viewer. The whole rests on small knob-like feet.
My first guess is that it could be some kind of weighing apparatus (or balance).
There is a dark, vertical rod visible in the box. About halfway there is a
crossbar and near the bottom of the box one can see an elliptical shape that could be one of the two scales hanging down from the crossbar.
