Music of the spheres

An awe inspiring piece of master craftsmanship. Still, it is also a highly philosophical form which reminds me of the Pythagorean theory of the music of the spheres. I saw this years ago when I was still a student on an excursion to Innsbruck and Vienna, but last year it when I saw it again after many years this minute object still had the same impact. I was happy that I could share it with my family now.
