There were so many great stories coming out of our series, “Center Point”, and this one had to deal with the massive “wagon wheel” prop that represented the importance of having your center right. Thanks Frank for sharing!
Here is the small statuette symbolizing our family 'emblem'. It was difficult to photograph, the wheel maker is camera shy. As you probably know, during the Spanish occupation of Holland, first names were no longer tolerated by the authorities and names were associated with one's vocation at the time for these Huguenots.
If the axle was off-center or unbalanced the wheel would shake to pieces a lot sooner than a truly centered wheel.
