Sic labitur aetas

The expression “thus passes a lifetime” is engraved in a Roman sundial. Time passes by human beings fleetingly and also by their work, which is always exposed to constant change and obsolescence.

A expressão “assim passa o tempo” encontra-se inscrita num relógio de sol Romano. O tempo passa fugidiamente pelos seres humanos e pelas suas obras sempre expostas a constante mutação e desactualização.
