Wheel to Live

There's a dreadful amount of snobbery directed towards the honest workers who toil to dig holes, close roads and block traffic and at best it's misguided, at worst a deliberate slight towards those who keep the country running.
Having heard of the recent lack of art on display the visiting post-modernist gas workers elected to brighten both our days and The Parade in Margate with the handsome sculpture pictured above.
Described by the trio of artists known as Dave, Pete and Bazza as "a metaphor for the mono-directional flow of finances from hard toiling payers of levies into deep unknown voids." it's proving to be popular with locals and tourists alike. Sadly it's only temporary so if you want to view it do hurry.
