This fine clock features an animated cuckoo bird which appears and calls the hour and half hour. The sound is mechanically created using wooden whistles and bellows. Bamboo is a renewable resource, belonging to the grass family. ÿIt is considered a flowering perennial evergreen plant and can be found in diverse climates. ÿÿThe yearly yield can be as much as 20 times traditional lumber, and it is one of the lightest and strongest natural building materials available. Bamboo has a beautiful and individualistic grain which is emphasized in this natural finish and accentuated in the models with different colors. Planting bamboo reduces rain run-off and prevents soil erosion. It can also help control water pollution because of its high nitrogen contents.
