Mona Lisa clock

Mona Lisa is one of the most illustrious paintings in the history of art. She has been seen almost everywhere on buildings and mugs, on computer ads, in cartoons. She even shared screen-space with Mr. Bean. Its now time, that she shared some space with you in your living room. Yes, its time to bring her home to keep a ‘watch’ on you 24/7. Mona Lisa Clock [available for preorder] pokes fun at the concept of hidden meaning in the work of Leonardo da Vinci. The clock features a minute hand that places the Mona Lisa’s left eye in a correct placement once every hour, hiding the hour hand’s black strip at exactly 12:00.

It is created by the Boym partners and was a finalist in this year’s National Design Awards competition conducted by the Smithsonian’s Cooper–Hewitt National Design Museum. It measures 8” x 10” x 1.25”, with a screened aluminum face. And it costs peanuts, just $24.95. Not too much if you are taking an artifact home, so what if it’s a sham! What are you expecting at $24.95 huh?
