Tijd is Geld

(Time is Money)

Show Explanation

The basis of the drawing is a 10 R $ note. We have a clock in the middle which is surrounded by a pyramid.

The clock itself consists of smaller improvised abstract clocks. The large arrows around the clock in the central part show the rotation of the clock.

The clocks of the chronographs form a face together with the 1 second indication. Often 1 second makes the difference between wealth and poverty. The horizontal arrows in the middle of the clock indicate a large equality sign in both directions.

The equality sign forms the base of the 10 R$ note.

Under the clock the time (T) is rotating in two directions which is connected by coins.  The turning movement of the clocks is converted into money (equality sign on both sides).

The pyramid represents architecture and wealth, thus capital.

On the top left and right are arrows which are connected in two directions by an equality sign and a clock in the form of 1 euro.
