Just another picture from the People’s History Museum today which you can click to enlarge.
It is called Clock Sculpture by Anthony Bennett and depicts the changing relationship that workers had with time during the Industrial Revolution. Apparently.
It shows two struggling workers and a child labourer while the shackled slave is a reminder that Manchester’s increasing wealth relied on imported slave grown cotton.
All four figures hold onto and at the same time resist the turning of the clock hand, but that allegory escapes me.
