These beautiful solid-brass sundials and gnomons feature the verse: "Make time, save time while time lasts. All time is no time when time is past."
Sundials are one of the oldest tools for measuring time. The Egyptians used a shadow stick or shadow clock as early as 1500 BC. The vertical stick or "gnomon" marked the time of day by the length and position of the stick's shadow. Gnomon in Greek means "the one that knows".
