Discovery : The Great Australian Clock

Discovery (Post#12) : The Great Australian Clock

During my self-guided tour in Queen Victoria Building, one of the interesting item to see and discover is “The Great Australian Clock” which is one of the mechanical clock to enjoy inside the building. The photo is part of Sydney Walking Tour April 2014 collection.

As per Wikipedia, it was designed and made by Chris Cook, weighs four tonnes and stands ten metres tall. It includes 33 scenes from Australian history, seen from both Aboriginal and European perspectives. An Aboriginal hunter circles the exterior of the clock continuously, representing the never-ending passage of time.
