Tempus - Obsidian Edition

About This Edition

Obsidian is a beautiful kinetic art piece that functions as a real time clock, for use in both residential and commercial spaces. The beauty of its surroundings are reflected in its surface, giving a sense of depth and elegance to it’s environment.

Obsidian has been around since the beginning of time and has been used in trading by the Mayans since 100 B.C with a perceived value being higher than gold. It is also believed to act as a protective shield against negative energies and as with this Tempus incarnation, looks to relieve stress with its calming patterns of building light.
