Artist's description:

Faisalabad’s historic connections to the UK are not solely based around tent pegging. The main bazaar is built in the shape of the Union flag (when viewed from above at least) and the town’s clock tower has a definite resemblance to London’s Queen Elizabeth Tower (recently renamed from St Stephen’s Tower during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee last year): more commonly known as Big Ben. Here I painted clock tower. The Faisalabad Clock Tower is a clock tower in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan, and is one of the oldest monuments still standing in its original state from the period of the British Raj. It was built by the British, when they ruled much of the South Asia during the nineteenth century.The foundation of majestic Clock Tower was laid on 14 November 1903 by the British lieutenant governor of Punjab Sir Charles Riwaz and the biggest local landlord belonging to the Mian Family of Abdullahpur. The fund was collected at a rate of Rs. 18 per square of land. The fund thus raised was handed over to the Municipal Committee which undertook to complete the project.The locals refer to it as "Ghanta Ghar in Urdu which translates into Hour House in English. It is located in the older part of the city. Color palette inspired from the colors of clock tower.
