The artists can't resist a play on words, and this clock is no exception. Coins from around the world are the focus of this striking, one-of-a-kind wall clock. Thirty tiny cast sterling silver figures are integrated with sixty-seven coins from a wide variety of countries creating a fascinating scene of wild activity. The face of the clock is hand-hammered copper. Brass and silver architectural elements form the asymmetrical composition. The entire piece is colored with a dark patina, then waxed to create a permanent finish. The clock runs on a very accurate quartz movement with AA battery included. The hands are handmade from brass.
