Time repeats day in and day out thus each hat rotates every hour to preserve time from decaying. Each hat collects frayed time and recycles it. They complete each cycle per day and each cycle per night to keep time functioning and going forward.
A tree trunk with clouds attached to the ends of its branches. There is a melting clock in the middle of the tree. Floating bowler caps throughout the painting. There are rose bushes growing along the ground.
