A famous clock on the wall of puppet theatre
This famous “puppet clock” on the wall of theatre at Sadovaya str. is not only a visit card of puppet thearte named after its founder Segei Obraztsov, but also independent place of interest in Moscow.
It was built not more than fourty years ago by sculptors Dmitry Shakhovsky and Pavel Shimes; mechanism was designed by Vaniamin Almanson. This clock still gladden people.
Every hour point is marked with a metal house where a fairy-tale animal or character “lives” behind closed beat doors.
In the beginning of every hour you can hear a cock-a-doodle-doo cry, then doors of the houses open and its indwellers come out. All this magical play goes by accompaniment of “Vo sadu li, v ogorode” song, mixed by N. Bogoslovsky.
All together animals come out only twice during the day and night – when both hands of the clock shows “12 hours”. That is why at afternoon near the wall there stands a crowd of children and their parents who are willing to see the animals.
“Appearance” of animals at midnight goes in night mode not to wake up citizens who live nearby.
