This piece captures the iconic Clock Tower at the Central Manufacturing District in Chicago, a poignant symbol of the city’s industrial past. Nestled within a verdant embrace of mature trees, the towering structure strikes an imposing yet nostalgic figure against the urban landscape. The interplay of nature and industry creates a stirring tableau of contrasts. The trees, vibrant and alive, appear to both stand guard and bow in reverence to the time-worn edifice.

The piece inspires reflection on the past, an appreciation of the present, and anticipation for the future, all bound within the silent, ever-ticking rhythm of the Clock Tower.
