Tuesday, December 16, 2014

America’s tallest cuckoo clock will be on display in Portland International Airport starting Thursday the 18th. 

Standing over 24 feet tall and nine feet wide, the clock was hand crafted in Oregon by Nicolas Gros, a sculptor and mechanical designer, and J. Chester Armstrong, a chainsaw wood sculptor.

Icon Portland characters surround the clock, ranging from a bicyclist to a beer enthusiast. Instead of the traditional cuckoo bird, a hand-carved chicken will mark the hours.   

The clock will be displayed in Portland for three months, after it first visited Seattle and Vancouver, B.C. as part of the “Portland is Happening Now” advertising campaign by Travel Portland to showcase Portland and promote the city's businesses. 

It will be located in the south atrium past security between the A, B, and C concourses.
