Chronophage

...or, the time-eater.



A huge timepiece by John C. Taylor, currently in the Museum of Scotland.  




The big metal blowfly perches on the golden clock, grasping and turning its shiny outer ring, driving the passing of time. Bright blue lights spin around its surface, marking the seconds and minutes.

I liked it so much I took a video, although I suspect it's going to look real blurry on blogger...

So cool.
