The white marble figure leans into a blue aluminum support representing the dependence we have among us, the need and freely given support we share as human beings for one another. The white marble figure was carved by the artist using various pneumatic, electric and hand tools, then hand sanded. The blue support was constructed of aluminum at the artist's request and design and is powder coated.
