Its design goes back to the ottoman and Fattimid era Arts, though its numbers are chosen to be English. This antique clock is mesmerized in entangled Arabic geometric patterns. In Islamic culture, the patterns are believed to be the connection to the spiritual realm, the bridge to purify the mind and the soul. The Islamic art whether in architecture, ceramics, textiles or books, is the art of decoration and the art of transcending the soul into harmony. The aim of this type of art in mosques for instance is to transfigure mosques "into lightness and pattern", for the relaxation of the mind and soul.
