This 12" wall clock was designed and developed to honor the lives of over 1.8 million Africans who were captured and sold into slavery during the transatlantic slave trade. 1.8 million represent the slaves that died on the journey over to the Americas cast over the side of ships and fed to sharks. This beautiful clock serves as a reminder to the current generation and generations to come that me must never forget the price our ancestors paid coming to the Americas. This clock speaks lot more about the history rather than just showing you the current time. Our Wall clock is made up of Premium Quality of Engineered Wood and is of robust quality. On top of Wooden base, we have added thick Enamel coating. This gives it a gloss finesse and Dust/waterproof layer of protection.
