Isamu Noguchi, The Opening, 1970. French rose marble and Italian white marble sculpture.

The Opening

French rose marble, Italian white marble
This followed The Spirit’s Flight. The attraction was to show how a very large sculpture could be made of relatively much smaller sections, all held in tension. Intended as a gate or arch but never realized.
