This is a traditional water clock. Water slowly drips from the main buckets into the long tubes via tiny pipes, at a constant rate, to measure time. Posted by Hello

Yay. I'm a part of Wikipedia. :-)

Hey Ben! Do you have any more pictures from your trip?

Rain gauge, for example. The current pic is under copyright violation.

Sundial, portrait or statue of Jang Yeongsil, astronomical devices, etc. would be great.

Thanks.

That's all I have, unfortunately. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help! Feel free to use them if you'd like.

Sorry for trouble, but 1 more copyright issue.

Anything that is used on Wikipedia must be free for everyone.

So, you can't just let me use it for Wikipedia only. You have to guarantee that you have no copyright for these pictures or intend to keep them private.

Can you agree with that? Thank you so much for your cooperation.

By the way, the L L L thing.. I tried to make a symbol, but it didn't show up. -Wikimachine

I don't really care too much about the copyright. Anyone can use them. However, since the pictures were taken in a museum, I'm not sure if there is a problem with that, in terms of copyright. If it's up to me, I have to copyright to those pics I offered.

You may find the picture of the original version of the Korean Water Clock in the next link. (Not the miniature version.)
