Custom Wallpaper Imagery: Movement

In the title of this post, "movement" refers to the inner workings of a watch or clock, not motion in general. The movement specifically refers to all of the moving parts, save for the clock hands, that keep your clocks ticking away. I've had a gear-inspired wall mural in mind for some time but finally just came across this perfect image to bring the idea to life.

All the gears, pulleys and wheels create a look not unlike a bank vault, especially when you consider that this macro shot is enormous compared to the real thing. I think any disassembled machinery has the makings of a perfect custom wallpaper application. I did a post a while back concerning circuit board custom wallpaper, and received a lot of positive feedback from it. Apparently there's a lot of you out there that enjoyed destroying your toys as youths as well!

I initially wanted to crop the image further, but the circular outline around the watch's inner workings framed the furniture arrangement so well I kept it as is. How cool would this wall mural be in your home? Showing your love of the mechanical and orderly, while at the same time also embracing your aesthetically-minded side. How well rounded can you get?
