Long Description:
This massive sculpture, is simple in design, but impressive in appearance. It is constructed in 2003, from three square bars, one of which is seventy feet long, and three massive flat slabs of welded steel.

This silhouette sculpture is typical of artist John Henrys work, using flat planes and long square bars, then painted in a single colour.

"The lower half of the work is composed of flat planes, which support three long beams that rise from the base at varied angles. The sculpture’s drama and aesthetic appeal is its great size and its sweeping gestures toward the sky. This work is an example of Henry’s trademark style of geometric sculptures. The sculpture weighs approximately 41,539 pounds and is 70 feet high and 36 feet long with a base that is 12 feet in diameter." Text Source: (visit link)
