Mark Gertler's Merry-Go-Round in Spitalfields: London #50

This roundel, or coal hole cover, is in front of Mark Gertler's former house at 32 Elder Street, Spitalfields, and is one of 25 different ones made for Spitalfields by Keith Bowler in 1995. It depicts a detail of Gertler's painting Merry-Go-Round (1916), which clearly shows Gertler's perception of war as absurd and horrific.

Below is an earlier link to another post I made about Gertler:
