The accent had several creative stages. Officially, it was called “the accent of visual agitation on work safety”. A sly metal snake twining round the tin cup – what could be more expressive for a “drunkard” worker.
A jack of all trades turned a tarred ladder track into a coil of a snake, plated it with non-ferrous metal details differing in colours and their hues. This resulted in a truly beautiful and precise poly-metal piece of plastic art. The master “sat” it on an aluminium cup made by a tin roofer.
The accent was placed near the pharmacy, but the cup made by a tinsmith was replaced with a plastic copper cup called “For the sake of holy peace”. Eight years later, vandals tore up the snake’s tongue and broke off the snake’s lower jaw.
