Leaping Ibex Chalet
This marvelous chalet cuckoo clock pays tribute to the goat’s wild cousin, the ibex, who prefers the more vertical, rugged terrain above the snow line. Male ibex are famous for their imposing, backward-curling horns. In the scene presented here, we see two male ibex facing each other. Are they going to lock horns? Quite the contrary. Upon hearing the happy sound of our cuckoo bird the ibex leap into the air gleefully.
