THE BIRTH OF TIME

Decorative wall for a school

Eight clocks are arranged as they are emerging, while only the 9th is completed.
To celebrate each new hour, the corresponding roman numeral lights up.

story

The history of time is a long and rich one.
What is the relationship between the concerns of the shepherd who relied on the shadow projected by his wooden stick, and ourselves who, after having discovered relativity, no longer quite agree how to exactly define the notion of time?
This is a tribute to the invention of the clock.
