Astronomical Clock by kaiack Astronomical Clock by kaiack
Famous clock in Old Town Square, Praha, Czech Republic built in 1410. Tourists gather round it every hour to watch Death ring a bell and the 12 Apostles parade around....a cock crows at the end to mark the hour.

End of history lesson.......

Thanks. I am flatterd but I must decline. I never allow others to use any of my images and I never use theirs. Each piece is unique to me. This one had quite of few hours work in Photoshop.

I browsed your gallery and you have some nice work. :-)

This clock looks like it does a lot more than parade apostles and tell time. Interesting.
