Title: Driving mechanism for liquid-containing ornament

Abstract: A driving mechanism is located below a transparent hollow casing of a liquid-containing ornament and includes a coupling member that engages with and rotates along with a rotary shaft of a movement of a music box located below the mechanism, stationary magnets that have a fixed polarity and are fixedly mounted at two ends of the coupling member, and rotary magnets that are rotatably mounted on the coupling member in the vicinity of the stationary magnets to freely change their polarities while rotating. The stationary and the rotary magnets alternately magnetically attract and repulse a plurality of magnet-attached floating ornamental items in the casing, causing the ornamental items to move just like something real.
