A Chariot clock

At the National Statuary Hall in the  U.S. Capitol, Washington DC –

Clio, the muse of History, stands in a winged chariot, or car, representing the passage of time. The car rests on a marble globe on which signs of the Zodiac are carved in relief. The chariot wheel is the face of the clock; its works, installed in 1837, are by Simon Willard.

Time flies….Make the best of it! Have a great time!!
