While I was browsing old pictures in my phone I found this one of a painting with a clock. The eyes move at the same time as the hands of the clock.

But I don't remember where I took that picture.

Do you know where it is?

I have mixed pictures from four years ago and I've visited several countries in Europe since then. Maybe it is in a small museum.

  • Have you checked the EXIF data? Chances are there is GPS info in the original photo – John Dvorak May 22 '17 at 15:40
  • @JanDvorak I've just checked but the GPS info is disabled. – skan May 22 '17 at 19:46

    @skan no, you just undid the corrections from Nate Eldredge. Paint is the stuff you use to make a painting. The picture in the question shows a painting. – phoog May 22 '17 at 19:47

    Looks like a German blinking eye clock - like this one – ugoren May 22 '17 at 20:22
  • Did you perhaps visit the Deutsches Uhrenmuseum in Furtwangen im Schwarzwald? – Giorgio May 23 '17 at 1:11

It is indeed in Salamanca:

Antique In Exposición "La Medida Del Tiempo"

Edit: Found a more up to date location via this site and can be seen on the left of this photo:

It's in a glass frame and there are clocks on the opposite wall which align with the picture from the question.

The page says it is now in the Fonseca palace.

Because this clock was made in Germany in The Black forest, 1870,

The Only place I can think about is:

German Clock Museum

Robert-Gerwig-Platz 1, 78120 Furtwangen im Schwarzwald,

+49 7723 9202800

I think you can find your clock on this wall: Google View

  • That's nice, I love clocks and ancient machines. I've never been to Germany though. The numbering of this picture in my camera close to other taken in Salamanca, Spain. Is it possible these clocks moved to other museums for a short time? – skan May 23 '17 at 9:36
  • It does look like it belongs there, however there's a reflection of a clock on that painting which doesn't fit with anything facing that wall. – Berwyn May 23 '17 at 20:49
