This stunning sculpture makes a powerful statement in any contemporary home. The artwork is made up of a curated collection of antique Indian cartwheels and wooden pulleys, once used in textile looms. The various parts have been assembled to a create a wooden "Carin" or trail marker (like the ones made from stone). The heavy wheels retain all of their original patina, some with deep grooves from extremely long use or from exposure to weather. Most date to the early 20th Century and were used in textile mills. Most haven't been used for decades, saved due to their extreme durability and a lack of alternative uses. Many simply sat unused as rubber tires replaced wooden wagon wheels and electric motors replaced the water wheels and belts (and wooden pulleys) in textile factories.
These vintage and antique assembled composite sculptures have tremendous visual impact, particularly when placed in simple modern rooms, in corners, near glass window walls, under loggias or on outdoor terraces. Their roundness and surface imperfection are the counterpoint to perfectly smooth walls and floors. Their age and history provide a counterpoint to excessive newness.
The wheels have been mounted on a steel disc base, welded to a tall pole. The pieces of the sculpture can be removed one by one and reassembled in any sequence. For outdoor use in areas that experience rainfall or high winds, an alternative heavy-duty rust-resistant base can be ordered.
