Michelangelo left his "Times of Day" partly unfinished, as can be seen, for example, in the only sketched heads of "Day" and "Evening". Giambologna, on the other hand, completed his versions down to the last detail. In Michelangelo's work, only the "Night" has attributes: Owl (night bird) and mask (nightmares). Giambologna also gave the other three figures distinctive features, for they rest on clouds in which the sun can be seen whole ("Day"), rising ("Morning") and setting ("Evening").
