water wall clock

People often compare time to water, symbolizing the time is just like water, gone forever. The wall clock uses rotten wood as mountains and fluorescent blue epoxy resin filled symbolizes rivers, vividly expressing the emotion of people for “time” flying. Chinese traditional culture advocates “the theory that man is an integral part of nature”. “The heaven is round and earth is square” advocated in superstitious geomancy is the special note for this worldview. Mountains and rivers represent earth, and round clock frame represents the heaven. So the meaning of the wall clock represents traditional philosophy in ancient china
