Anker Clock (Ankeruhr)

The Art Nouveaum, Anker clock , designed in 1911 by the painter and sculptor Franz von Matsch, connects two buildings in what is thought to be Vienna’s oldest Square, Hoher Markt. Every hour a famous person appears, including Marcus Aurelius and Charlemagne. Each of the twelve figures have a roman number on their head indicating the hour, while the minutes are shown by an arrow above the figures that point to the minutes on the clock face.
