The four figures on the clock, which represent the things considered despicable at the time in which the clock was built, are also set in motion. The first figure is Vanity, the second is The Miser or The Usurer, the third is Death, which strikes the hourly time, and the fourth is The Turk that represents leisure and entertainment.
