Car of History Clock

From <a href="http://www.aoc.gov/cc/art/car_of_history.cfm">http://www.aoc.gov/cc/art/car_of_history.cfm</a>:

Clio, the Muse of History, stands in a winged chariot representing the passage of time and records events as they occur. The car rests on a marble globe on which signs of the Zodiac are carved in relief. The chariot wheel is the face of the clock; its works are by Simon Willard.
