Human Sundial

Jim Forcier-Call demonstrates the sundial.

As part of the Jemez Springs 50th Anniversary Celebration, the Friends of the Library sponsored the construction and installation of a Human Sundial in the Village Park. This unique installation is a lasting gift to the Village and a fund-raiser for the Library.

This ground-level sun clock surface uses a person’s own shadow to tell the correct clock time. The sundial is surrounded by a circle of names, each one written in a concrete stone.

For a minimum donation of $15 to the Jemez Springs Library you can add your name or the names of loved ones to the circle.
