The enginuity of some inventors/designers is quite extraordinary. Where do they dream up masterpieces like this Corous Clock? It is fascinating to watch the grasshopper on the top literally eating the seconds as they pass into minutes and hours.

So funny watching this clock move. The people surround it to get a photo. It can get a bit crowded, even just to get a look.
