Animal Head Clock

Using 12 plastic animal figurines, a plexiglass disc, some glue, paint and a few other bits, I made an original clock for my sister. It was a pretty risky present, since I had no idea if it would look awesome like it did in my head, or if it would look 100% crazy person. In the end, it was 90% awesome, 10% weirdo - a perfect ratio in my mind!
12 animal figurines (I used these, these and this, because some stag horns at 12 were a must)
