    The Prague Astronomical Clock, or Prague Orloj, is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. it was finished and in place in 1410, over eighty years before Columbus made his voyage of discovery to the Americas. The dial at the center of the clock which shows the positions of the moon and the sun. What makes the Orloj a magnet for visitors to the Czech city is the clockwork show of the figures of the apostles, which on the hour parade themselves.

Glory ― A person standing in one of the archways gives some idea as to the masive scale of the glorious Saint Vitus' Cathedral. Saint Vitus' Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and the seat of the Archbishop of Prague. Located within Prague Castle and containing the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors, this cathedral is an excellent example of Gothic architecture and is the biggest and most important church in the country. #Prague #Saint_Vitus_Church #John_and_Tina_Reid

Could do something like this if I modified the arms of a clock to be loosely telescoping so they only display 3-9.
