'Strasburg Clock' model by Richard Bartholomew Smith

This large-scale (1:5) working model is a reproduction of the original astronomical clock in Strasbourg Cathedral in France. The clock is made from carved and painted wood with gold painted detailing. The clock displays the position of the planets out to Neptune, the days of the month, solar time, lunar phases and analog time.
