On the Wunderkammer theme, we created this outlandish clock which was conceived as an apparent automaton (the legs for movement) inspired by the Russian fairy tale of the Baba Yaga. The witch lives in a house with paws and moves in the countryside in search of unfortunate people to eat. She looks out the window/dial and with a grin marks the time of the next meal. The roof is decorated with an inlay of iridescent tiles made of Pāua mother-of-pearl with color of the night.
