“High and low form opposite inclinations in relation to each other; they are relative to each other” (Lao-tzu, Book I-II ).
The upper part and lower part of the piece define each other, but then transcend this relative distinction and become a single unified form, solid and powerful. However, the tension remains, creating a dynamic sensation in the viewer.
