A clock with porcelain monkey orchestra figures in Petit Palais, France

When my dear friend Valentina Roman (who presented here the Corvins’ Castle and Aiud), saw the article on Ankeruhr (Anchor Clock) – the public clock with human figures in Vienna, Austria she immediately sent me a picture of a special clock with figures from France.

To be more specific it’s a clock you can admire at “le Petit Palais” in France. The clock is very special and has several interesting figures made in porcelain. Unlike Ankeruhr that presents historical figures, this clock has an orchestra of monkey figures! This is why it is called, in French,  “Pendule a orgues au concert des singes”. Author of the clock mechanism is Jean Moisy (1714-1782).

The clock is believed to be a special command and it’s special for the contrast between the golden bronze and the porcelain figures. You can see the clock in Salle 11. L’art sous Louis XV, Section XVIIIe siècle of the Petit Palais in France – and here’s a photo of this clock and a link to find out more (in French).

PS: yes, I like clocks and I still want to have one similar to the clock here.

    Drink 8-10 glasses of water every day – this helps your body remove
    impurities and fat. I avoided starchy vegetables like broccoli and peas, which are healthy
    but can also increase my triglycerides. PK Safety Supply has been in business

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
