Sundial: UMBRA TRANSIT, LUX MANET

This sundial bears the motto Umbra Transit, Lux Manet. It means "The Shadow Passes, The Light Remains." The sundial is located at Saint Marcin's church in Jarocin, Poland, and was installed in 1910. You can see another sundial with an expanded version of this motto on a sundial here: Hora Fugit, Mors Venit, Umbra Transit, Lux Manet, "Time Flies, Death Comes, The Shadow Passes, The Light Remains."
