[Refers to well-respected sculptor and lecturer Silpa Bhirasri. He established and taught at Silpakorn University. He is praised as the “father of modern art in Thailand.”
“Tomorrow is too late” is one of his famous quotes to encourage people to start doing their work without waiting.
Oddly enough he seems to be holding one of Salvador Dali’s melted clocks in the cartoon.]

    Khun Arun has intended to use “The Persistence of Memory” by Salvador Dali as a symbol that if you are with haste, tomorrow will be too late as the time (symbolized by molten watches) will be molten away.
