We have not got only one source of inspiration. Maybe the concept of space-time

Three Dimensions for the Fourth
Although it ends up being rather simple, starts really deep. This is a clock whose roots go all the way back to the history of humanity, the realization of time, and the portrayal of it in written or sculpted form. We recall ancient Egyptian Priests, Celtic Druids, Roman Engineers, and Renaissance Artists, each of them attempting to specify time with a single boundary. To break out of the notion that all time is a boundary, and that although time is but a moment, it’s always moving in more than one dimension, “Monolith,” have taken time to two sides. This clock is a block, and on two sides of it the time is displayed.
