This is a clock that continues to count from one-tenth of a second to 9.9 trillion seconds (317,097 years).

It is the embodiment of one of Miyajima's three concepts: "Continue Forever." In this small body, the life and death, memories and time of all kinds of people are recorded, and 300,000 years of memories take shape with the accumulation of each second.
