The Decapitating, Rat-Eating Clocks of the Black Forest

As the full title says, these are not your grandmother’s cuckoo clocks! Justin Miller has been fascinated with cuckoo clocks of the Black Forest since he was a child. He tells us about the origins of clocks with automatons, and how they became associates with the Black Forest region of Germany. Shown here are clocks featuring a butcher slaughtering an ox and another on which a man eats a plate of rats. Link -Thanks, Ben!
