The Greeks have used sundials to measure time since 100 B.C. Reminiscent of classic Greek mythology, this Atlas Armillary Sundial will demand attention, whether placed in your home or garden. An exquisite and functional work of art, the sphere is imprinted with Roman numerals to measure time as the sun casts it's shadow throughout the day, just as it did in ancient Greece. Imported.

In the mid-1950's H. F. du Pont redesigned an area of the garden that had been tennis and croquet courts. He added an armillary sphere, that was also a sundial, thus creating Winterthur's Sundial Garden.
