If Dr. Caligari had a (tool) 'cabinet' what would that look like?

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) is a 1920 German silent horror film,
directed by Robert Wiene. Considered a landmark of German Expressionist cinema,
it tells the story of an insane hypnotist
who uses a somnambulist to commit murders.

When I saw the wooden box which the artwork is based, the movie title came to my mind...
And I playfully did it with no intention of realistic details.
