This wooden clock, carved from a single block of mahogany
Combines old world craftsmanship with novel artistic ideas. The
Clock itself rises prominently out a rough background set out
To display the progression of time. This is contrasted by the
Spider web above which implies time standing still. Both are
Distinguished by the border carved in Rococo style with some
Charming adaptations .The open door at the base is at once
Inviting and reminds one of home, with the balconies and
Shutters at the sides carrying the feeling further. The whole
Piece is a kind of house centered around the clock.
50”H x 22”W x 1.5” D

Awesome carving. For me it has a almost Alice in Wonderland feel to it. Very pleasing to find the meaning in each area of the clock.

Excellent job
Joey

Beautiful and amazing artistry. It has life. I was awe struck, before I took in the fact of its enormity. I’ll have to reference a thesaurus for better words.

It is very interesting and unusual to add a spider web to a clock, Boris. In this part of our country, it is referred to as a “Dream Catcher” to catch and hold on to good dreams. Beautiful work!
