What the... What? (#3) Revealed!

If you were wondering about the item we posted for our What the... What? #3, the time has come.  The item pictured is actually one link of a rain chain.  

The original photo we posted.
And here is the item in action.  Rain chains are used as alternatives to downspouts.  They're decorative and functional, usually helping direct water in to a drain or storage container.  Although the ones we had were antiques from the US, they're quite common elsewhere, including Japan, where they're often found around temples.  Rain chains are making quite a resurgence across the US as we try to 'go green' and do what we can to conserve water for our gardens.
