About the Artwork

The 14-foot pendulum clock by artist Heather Ramsay, is made of steel with a polished copper finish. The clock includes a small brass mouse running up each side, a reference to the "Hickory-Dickory Dock" nursery rhyme. It's the artist's way of reminding us of the time that has passed since childhood.

Part of the King County Metro Collection.
