921 // Augustin Tschinkel

“Workers” – a nice depiction by Augustin Tschinkel from 1932.
My first thought was of course to animate the gears… but then I realised that this is about striking workers.
“All wheels are standing still, if a strong arm so will.” (free translation of a German phrase from a famous poem/song by Georg Herwegh from 1863: “Alle Räder stehen still, wenn dein starker Arm es will”)
