The artwork was commissioned to represent the American Embassy along with fourteen other artists chosen by their embassies for the Azabu Juban, Tokyo neighborhood. Designed as a gesture of reconciliation, the miniature Pennsylvania long case clock symbolically replaces a stopped clock the artist saw during a visit to the Atomic Bomb Museum in Nagasaki.
