Details on the walls to either side of the front door echoed the design of the sculpture. The details were wall sconces that lit at night.

Horizontal lines remained on the surface of several of the pieces. Those lines were the result of the bending process that was used to create these smooth bends.

The Volute sculpture in context as it stood to one side of the entry at 199 New Montgomery. Notice the two wall sconce lights to either side of the entry, and the complimentary awning overhead.
