Alpine Cattle Descent Chalet
Alpine descent is the authentic Swiss tradition which is celebrated in autumn all over Switzerland. When the season turns to autumn, cows adorned with flowers and ribbons descend from the Alpine pastures after spending the summer months. They are accompanied by the traditionally dressed farmers and their cowherds, ringing the iconic cowbells all the way down to the valley. This exquisitely crafted clock has the familiar Swiss chalet-style veranda, as well as a staircase leading to the lawn below. On the left side of the chalet, stands a beautifully hand-colored cow with a large cow bell and flowers around its neck. Off to the right side of the scene you’ll find a long fountain well.
