A watch is a rather symbolic subject. It is associated with time, and therefore with human life. Watches are found in literature, art, architecture and so on. The Greek artist Gregory Grosos decided that the clock could fit whole worlds in itself literally.

The Greek calls his works “miniature worlds”. This is true, because he places them inside the old pocket watches. Moreover, it seems that instead of hands and dial people and mechanisms were located here initially.

All ideas belong to Gregory Grosos. The style he uses is often called steampunk, but the author himself considers it simply his fantasies. The Greek focuses on the details, but the overall composition still looks harmonious.

Fantasy author seems inexhaustible. Despite the small size of the clock, he manages to tell a full story, filled with serious plot outline and specifying details.
