Summary:
The steel piece stands upright, appearing to be in two distinct sections and separated by a gap. There is a reflective steel sphere situated in the gap and keeps the whole piece together. According to the sculptor, the work is inspired by a saying: "God doesn't close a door without opening a window." It is about overcoming obstacles and recognizing humility and opportunity.
