The Mother Ship has Recently Capsized.

I used an old steam pressure gauge from the steam age era. It has a broken glass face and wonderful coloring. I added vintage hinges to create the body and embellish with a Victorian spoon handle. I found the odd text in a 1920 magazine article about ships. Seemed fitting somehow…. another fictional relic.
I wonder about the pieces who once were important and maybe even vital to a long ago people who eventually abandoned them to a newer technology and the objects that ended upon the debris pile of history which now is our world..
