Description of the Drawing

This clock fort he blind is as large as a table clock. The face, however, is based on an analogue rist watch. So, for orientation, individual dots indicate the full hours. At three, six and nine o’clock there are two dots, and at twelve o’clock there are three dots. The little hand consists of two dots, while the the big hand has three. The clock is connected to a massive pedestal.

This braille drawing was originally created for the non-profit organisation einfach machbar e. V. during the project “Blind Children Draw Pictures – Drawing with Letters” financed by the charity Aktion Mensch.
