The placing of the clock strikes me as rather unusual!

It would be interesting to understand how the clock placement decision was mad, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Indeed it would - but I've failed to find anything about it!
Joli plafond, pas facile de voir l'heure.
Tom Wilson: C'est vrai, Martine!

How bizarre is that Tom!
Tom Wilson: Totally weird!

Well I have never seen the like before Tom, but it is a beautiful ceiling all the same.
Tom Wilson: Very strange - can't understand at all why they placed it there.

Yes, this is very unusual. Could you read the words at the edge of this part of the ornate ceiling?
Tom Wilson: I found it impossible to read them from the ground, Philine, and, for some reason, they don't show up very well when magnified.
I see what you mean.
Tom Wilson: In fact, I didn't notice the clock until I took the photo!
It rather spoils the symmetry let alone being In a daft place Tom grin
Tom Wilson: It does, rather, but otherwise, it's a lovely ceiling!
Yes, you would expect it to be placed in the centre rather than where it is. Must have been some reason for that decision.
