This piece is inspired by Turritopsis dohrnii, otherwise known as the Immortal Jellyfish. It is a creature with the astounding ability to revert itself to an earlier stage of its life cycle, turning back the hands of time whenever it wishes and as many times as it wants to. A true biological time machine.
