Wheel of Progress
Bronze, aluminum, ceramic, brick, mannequin, steel-toe boots, wood (ash) worn pants, lithograph
Bronze casting of a small diameter train wheel sits atop a 72", full scale wooden (ash) railroad track. The track is elevated off the ground, at a slope by a stack of bricks, a cast ceramic railroad tie plate with cast aluminum railroad spikes, and a pair of legs. The sculpture is based on the accompanying "Wheel of Progress" photo-lithograph; a 28x38 in. print sourced from cover image of the 1955 "Wheel of Progress" railroad comic book.
