The Astronomical Clock of Clock Court (larger) was made for Henry VIII in 1540 by Nicholas Oursian, Devisor of the King’s Horologies. “The clock shows the hour, month, day, number of days since the beginning of the year, and the phases of the moon. The sun revolves around the earth as the clock was designed before the discoveries of Galileo and Copernicus.” - Hampton Court Palace guidebook, Simon Thurley (1996, p. 44) // sircle: (12keys)
I like the idea of adding a quality of timelessness to the piece, perhaps through something like this in the set. Although the piece is set in modern day, the yearning for the stars and for connection is hardly modern.

A great minimal piece of Celestial Astronomy art that feels very contemporary with elegant lines and milky way trails and fits really nicely into a Boho styled room. Black available upon request.
