Magdalena Abakanowicz, The Second Never Seen Figure On Beam with Wheels, 2001, bronze.
Disks and wheels on Abakanowicz's sculptures signify transition or dislocation. The squared-off axle here appears more like a balance beam. The figure atop the beam stands straight and tall, exuding strength and dignity, but its heals and toes extend precariously beyond the beam's edges.
