Star of David (Phonetic Hebrew Clock)

If there's something like "favourite Etsy senior", then Arty is mine. He's 81 years old, a real New Yorker and Brooklyn native, and he builds wall clocks.

I like this clock, because instead of numbers it has phonetic Yiddish spelling. This one goes clockwise, but Arty also makes the same model counting hours counter-clockwise.

The significance of the two fish in the center stems from a verse in Genesis where Jacob blesses his grandchildren Efraim and Menashe to "multiply like fish" in the land of Israel. Fish, surrounded by water, represent the all encompassing comfort one has when immersed in his true environment, just as the fish is completely enveloped in its liquid environs. On Rosh Hashanah, there is a prevalent custom to eat the head of a fish to remind us of the necessity to be constantly enveloped by the Creator of the Universe.
