This 18th century musical mantel clock seems at first glance to be nothing more than an ornate sculpture, as it lacks a clock face. On closer inspection however you discover that the numerical figures actually appear in the bust's eyes. To see for yourself, take a trip down to the Met in NYC.

That is beautiful. Reminds me of Flaubert's novel Salammbo.
