Weight-driven clock with a sand escapement

The clock shown here is a sort of endless hourglass. The large weight-driven clock uses the passing of sand through a circular series of connected hourglasses to regulate the passing of time. A very novel concept and and a fine piece or kinetic sculpture!

While a bit more conventional, here is where you can get various sand timers.
