Church Series > Church Crane SOLD

This piece is based on a shipping crane used in harbors around the world to unload freight from ships. I chose it initially, since these types of cranes have an 'operator's shed' at the top of them and I wondered what it would look like if there were a steeple on that shed. I brings up a whole nest of connotations - why is it so decrepit but still working? what is in the crate that it's lifting up?
All parts work including the boom, the cable, the crane rotates on it's axis and the wheels at the base of the crane move back and forth in the track.
