Description of Work
The art was designed by H. H. Winner who was also the architect of the building. In 1939. Pajaro Valley Bank (1888-1961) had the building built on the site of their previous office.
According to H. H. Winner: "The wheel, mechanically energized, has removed heavy labor - the cross - from the backs of man. To the right and left of the wheel carry the cross. Right, a man holds in his hands the tools of reciprocal action - the sledge hammer and shovel. "
The wheel has a few rays of the sun from behind. The man on the left holds a hammer and a slide rule. Important basic tools for building. (Slide rules have been replaced by the electric calculator.)
In 1961 Wells Fargo bought the bank and continued to use the building.
