Sun Chaser

The earliest sundials known from the archaeological record are shadow clocks from ancient Egyptian astronomy and Babylonian astronomy. Presumably, humans were telling time from shadow-lengths at an even earlier date, but this is hard to verify.

Prototype history

Once upon a time, a mighty Red Dragon, the Lord of the ocean, fell in love with the Sun, which made its waters sparkle like billions of diamonds. But the vast thickness of the sky separated them. The dragon asked his brother, the Lord of the air, to lift the waves of the ocean higher and higher. But he has never reached the beautiful face of the Sun. Then he decided to present all the treasures, stored at the bottom to the Luminary. But the rays of the Sun have not been able to break through the water column.
In desperation, they turned to the Heavenly Emperor. And the Almighty answered them: a million years will pass when the world will change and the mountains will sink, and the bottom of the ocean will rise, and the sun will fall on the Earth, and only at this last moment will you be destined to meet.


Since then, the Red Dragon has been watching his Love and counts down the years.

No, this is not an ancient Asian legend. We just came up with it looking how the "Sun Chaser" prefabricated sundial works. You can come up with many of your versions.

In Asian mythology, dragons are the foundation of everything. These creatures have many forms, but they represent the four elements: fire, water, air and earth. With their unlimited power over the Earth and the creatures inhabiting it, even the most powerful dragons are powerless against the invincible Time. Therefore, to create a model of a sundial in the shape of a dragon was an ingenious idea. As a result of a bold design idea, a beautiful composition was born that tells of a Red Dragon that wants to reunite with the Sun, but only by following it with the gaze of its jade eyes, counting down the hours of eternity. A beautiful legend has found its embodiment in metal, thanks to the efforts of the engineers of "Metal Time".

The Metal Time team, while creating the Sun Chaser, was inspired by the history of human observation over time and Asian mythology. Of course, the basis of the sundial was a fixed piece that casts a shadow on the timeline, but our engineers and designers decided to improve this design.

The result is an art object that will bring a lot of pleasure to both lovers of technical creativity and connoisseurs of beauty.
