First thing that came to my mind was a piece of a song: "Time is ticking, ticking, ticking... ...into the future". Was that from Seal?! Gonna check. Ohboy, was I wrong it's [slippin' - NOT ticking] and it's "Steve Miller Band, with "Fly like an eagle".
Beautiful photograph. I once did tribal drawings and this one is similar to this photo: Tribal pregnant woman but then without the hourglass.
