One chair of 12 forming 'The Jurors' public art installation at Runnymede commemorating Magna Carta

This relief depicts the Zong, a ship in 1781 from which 133 slaves were thrown overboard with the owners making an insurance claim for loss of their human cargo. The resulting legal case resulted in public indignation and outcry. The symbol on the sails is the west African Epa indicating captivity, law and justice.
