A full-length standing male figure holding a jump rope in both hands is cut out of a piece of 1/8 inch thick steel plate. The figure hangs on steel hooks that are welded to a frame constructed of bent steel tubes of varying diameters. A bent steel tube is formed into the jump rope, which is welded to the figure's hands. The figure is painted black with yellow designs; the frame is painted orange and yellow. Two triangles of concrete, one atop the other form the foundation.
