* "Molded in Evil", in ''Plop!'' #5, featured a sculptor who with the use of a "magic liquid" could cause his clay models to come to life.

* One character from Jack Vance's ''Literature/DyingEarth'' encounters an old man who never ceases playing a flute, and a young woman who claims to be his daughter, whose movements and moods always correspond to the music he plays. It's never stated outright, but it's strongly implied that she ''is'' the music of the flute, manifested in physical form, and he doesn't stop playing because she would die if he did.
