Folk Art Time-Bomb Clock

About

A wonderful folk art "time-bomb" constructed from an old alarm clock and other found materials. Beautifully and artistically executed and wired to light up upon "explosion". Carved wooden dowels represent dynamite sticks and the whole composition of this piece has a very Duchampian-spirit.
