The Westminster Chiming Grandfather clock is an obelisk of discarded toys. At 2.2 meters tall, it's also a monstrous, functioning timepiece that now resides in, where else, Dubai.


But how was it created? Well, just a little Buzz Lightyear here, Hulk action figure there, and then a coat of high gloss polyurethane white paint to seal everyone in.

There are more out there, says designer Ryan Mc Elhinney, with the toys used symbolizing the client's childhood memories. This leads me to believe some clocks are far scarier than others. [Dezeen]
