|This sculpture is an emotional piece about the supportive role of family in life. The sculpture is very compact. Stark contrasts of highly polished black surfaces, against unpolished grey rhythmic, repeating lines, result in a wonderful opposition and play of dark and light. This makes the piece very striking - and it can be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors.
