Standing tall at the center of Florin’s market in Koblenz, Augenroller is a clock tower notoriously famous for mocking passersby. At the crown of the tower, overlooking the marketplace is the sheet-metal visage of Johan Lutter, a 16th-century thief. Remarkably, the eyes of the robber move right to left along with the pendulum, and as the clock strikes an hour or half an hour, the robber’s tongue sticks out in a mocking gesture. According to folklore, on his deathbed, Lutter made a similar expression to mock his horde of victims.
