Inspired by Momo, a German novel by Michael Ende. It’s about a little girl called Momo who has to save the world from time thieves. The drawing weaves together the main elements of the story – Momo herself, the turtle Cassiopeia who helps her, various clocks, and the “hour flowers” which represent time in the book. The spiral thing is a special clock owned by Master Hora, the master of time. The girl is loosely based on this stock photo.
