This clock has about 20 flowers missing or broken, and 19 leaves missing or broken. But the best part is the summer putti is broken off, and missing. So I get to make a Frankenstein putti, reconstructed using molds I’ll make from the other intact cherubs.
I finally found an exact replica of this clock on line, so I was able to make a historically correct putti. At this stage it is finished except for the final painting. He will also be holding a glass of wine, and he has grapes in his hair, which are hard to see in this picture.
