Whatever you're imagining, it's likely on the new enormous cuckoo clock commissioned by Travel Portland that's currently on display in Portland as part of the #PDXNow winter tourism campaign. The 24-foot-tall clock features intricate carvings of iconic Portland institutions and characters, including 'Santasquatch', a pile of Voodoo Donuts, the Portlandia statue, Stumptown coffee and naked bike riders. Travel Portland is taking the clock – the largest freestanding cuckoo clock in America – to Seattle, then to Vancouver, B. C. Temporary installations in each city feature freebies and deals that highlight what Portland has to offer in the... Travel Portland even brought popular Portland characters, including the Unipiper and the folks behind the Naked Bike Ride, along for the trip. The extremely intricate clock was designed by Nicolas Gros and hand-carved by Sisters, Ore. Instead of using a chisel, Armstrong wielded a variety of chainsaws to carve the clock. It took about 2 ½ months from start to finish to create the tallest freestanding cuckoo clock in America, according to Megan Conway of Travel Portland. Armstrong has crafted works for people including George W. Bush and Michael Jackson, but according to Conway, the #PDXNow Cuckoo Clock included his largest (the Portlandia statue) and smallest (tray of Voodoo donuts) sculptures ever.
