Conceptualized by Heart of America's own Craig Shannon and Mike Whalen, "Wheels of Progress" represents the evolution of transportation depicted by 4 giant wheels. One in stone to symbolize the prehistoric era, one in wood to symbolize the middle ages, one in raw steel to represent the industrial age, and one in stainless steel to represent the modern age.
