Wind Rose 24 Hour Wall Clock
This wall clock Wind Rose is made of several layers of wood, woodstained and painted high quality acrylic paint. The front elements of the clock are decorated with detailed and intricate engraving. Stainless steel elements are used in the construction of this clock model.
Natural rustic colors of this unique handcrafted wooden wall clock with 24 hour clock face will make a perfect match for any modern space that pretends to be a vintage one.
Before the development of the compass rose, a wind rose was included on maps in order to let the reader know which directions the 8 major winds (and sometimes 8 half winds and 16 quarter winds) blew within the plan view. No differentiation was made between cardinal directions and the winds which blew from said directions. North was depicted with a fleur de lis, while east was shown as a Christian cross to indicate the direction of Jerusalem from Europe.
Upon request the clock can be personalized with a text engraving, which will neatly supplement the look of the clock face.
