A Carved cuckoo clock (also called “traditional”) is appropriately named so as it is made purely of wood from the Black Forest. Therefore, most traditional clocks feature the most iconic elements of Black Forest wildlife. Many will have a bird or deer carved onto the frame with several leaves.
Some have music and some do not, though occasionally those with music will feature dancers as well. There are also a number of owl cuckoos that are always a family favorite. However, the bird and leaf style is the most common.
