The top of the sculpture was a mirror image of the lower half. Here, against the sky, the sculpture resembled two Christian crosses holding hands.

The feet of the sculpture were bolted to a thick concrete slab. Only when looking at the feet, does one realize that the vertical pieces were offset from each other.
