Judith takes her time

02 Feb

Jan Hermelinck, Longcase clock automaton scene of the Apocryph story of Judith and Holofernes,, 3rd quarter of 18th century, Dutch Burr-Walnut, 250 cm. high, auctioned by Christie’s June 21 – 22, 2011 (Lot 118)

Tick Tock.
A clock? Seriously?  So that every hour, Judith runs out of the back and cuts off Holofernes’ head before she departs in haste.
