Description.

Geese Polished Brass Sundial (large ) This Sun Dial is a round one.

The Geese Polished Brass Sundial depicts the figures of  three migrating birds. http://www.washingtonpost.com  For ever obedient to the instinctive  journey they must make.

The Inscription.

That, is the Sundials message, “Time takes all but Memories”. I could not have said it better myself.

Imagine. a pleasant afternoon in the warming sun. A dalliance if you like. What is the meaning of the message ? Realising that time does not repeat itself, once it is gone it is gone.

Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday. The inscription says it all, “Time takes all but Memories”.

The Sun Dial.

This (Large Sized) Geese Polished Brass Sundial is made of solid brass. The sundial will, over time develop a natural patina as it reacts to the climate and the atmosphere.

Most people believe this verdigris improves the appearance of the sundial as it ages. Thereby creating a “I have been here forever” appearance. It says I belong, I am part part of the setting I am in.

The Roman Numerals and the figures of the geese  have been crafted and raised making them easy to read.

Measurements.

  • It measures 25 cm (10 inches) in diameter which is a good size for a garden sundial.
  • The Gnomon  is 17 cm long (6.75 inches).
  • The Gnomon’s highest point is 10 cm above the base. The Gnomon is there to cast a shadow onto the Roman Numerals thereby indicating the time.

Installation.

To install any Sundial, a bright sunny day is best. Position the Gnomon (shadow indicator) facing South.

It is important to set the sundial in its position on a sunny day, With out the sun onto the sundial it is not possible to set the sundial correctly.

Setting Time.

You need the overhead shadow at noon to be central over the diamond and the arrow head. They are located between the roman numerals of  XI and I.

The correct time to set this in position is 12 noon, Eastern Standard Time. Not daylight saving time.
