DescriptionA dockyard setting in which a crane has been depicted in the shape of a bird. The base which keeps this machine upright is shown in danger of collapsing, and so the crane has began to lean towards the water. Its hook consequently now hangs above three ships, where the one which is most prominent has been labelled 'Exports'.*
