This Sculpture is a clock with a window in the middle. It represents our time in this life, Moments that pass, with a child's handprint, and a broken heart. It has a wind movement feature on top that represents life that just keeps turning, and a star that represents our heroes that keep us safe. The back of the sculpture shows the inner working gears of the piece.
