That’s Cuckoo

16 12 2014

Bwahahaha!!!! The Bradford Exchange strikes again, introducing the “only Cuckoo Clock inspired by the Wonders of Ancient Egypt.” The description is quite lengthy, highlighting various details (“regal golden Canopic jar-inspired pendulums”) and listing terms of sale (“Limit: one per order” – no worries there), but my favorite is “Queen Nefertiti’s sculpted bust emerges on the stroke of each hour.” Oh my.

Think the Egyptian Museum needs one of these? Seriously, my uncle had one of those Nefertiti heads, life size edition, from the ’60s that used to creep me out. Too bad I sold it at a garage sale, would be $ Egyptian Kitsch now!
