The human figures are the embodiment of the spiritual essence. Wald stated that ‘this conception tried to depict the vicious circle between Life and Death, running with such uncountable centrifugal speed that could take Man an eternity to catch up with its secret. This is the reason the half moon shapes chase each other with the ethereal speed of light’. The bodies are abstracted from the sensual by means of an attenuation of the forms, which exaggerates the natural proportions of the heads, legs and arms. Simplicity and delicacy are the defining components of the flowing design of this sculpture.
