About The Artwork: 

Introducing "Sweeping Expanse," a surreal black-and-white illustration that brings together the beauty of an infinite universe and the mundane. At its center, a clock containing a galaxy is surrounded by two brooms gently sweeping away ash or dust into the void below. Vines hang from above, dripping liquid onto this strange yet mesmerizing scene.

The clock symbolizes time, representing the passage of hours, days, and years. It can be seen as a reminder that time is constantly moving forward and that each moment is precious. The clock could also represent the rhythm of life, with each tick and tock reminding us of the importance of balance and harmony.

On the other hand, the galaxy symbolizes the universe and the vastness of space. It represents the unknown and the mysteries of existence, suggesting that there is more to life than we can see or comprehend. The galaxy could also represent the interconnectedness of all things, as each star and planet is part of a larger whole.

The footprints in the image suggest movement and progress. They could represent a journey or a path we are following, reminding us that each step we take impacts the world around us. The footprints could also represent a legacy, as each step we take leaves a mark on the world that we will one day leave behind.

Putting these symbols together, we can see the clock containing a galaxy and footprints as an image of time, space, and progress. It suggests that each moment is a step on a journey that is part of a larger whole.

"We came whirling out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust... The stars made a circle, and in the middle, we dance." — Rumi
