Summary:
Installation consisting of five parts. A standing vertical sheet of steel has an abstract human figure cut out of the center. Lined up behind that, to be viewed through the cutout, are four abstract figures which mirror the first cutout, but diminish in size away from the first piece. The last (and smallest) piece echoes the shape of the first figure but has another figure cutout of its center and attached, in line, at a distance of 9 inches. This attached cutout has an oval cutout in the center and an embryo-shaped piece fixed in the cutout hole. The steel sculpture is painted.
