Downward Pulling #2

c. 1972
Marquina marble, Spanish Alicante marble
There are two versions of Downward Pulling. This was the first; the second one is with Giorgio Angeli, my assistant, in Querceta, Italy. A broken ring, the beginning of a helix, either a levitating or a pulling downward—there is motion, tension, and thus participation.
