Time passes as a shadow. Discover the beauty and historical significance of sundials in the Adler's newest exhibition 'Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.' The exhibition includes more than a dozen exquisite artifacts from the 17th and 18th centuries and originating from France, Austria, and Germany. Drawn from the Adler's Mensing Collection, the sundials featured are hand crafted from stone, brass, silver, and bronze. Several are massive pieces of stone or metal -- built on bases of hard rock and weighing as much as forty pounds. Others are smaller and more delicate. Some of the more unique pieces are a group of stone sundials that are elaborately painted with colorful coats of arms.
