The placing and location of the two forms has a relationship with the human scale, invoking an intimacy that belies the otherwise unyielding nature of the materials. This sculpture lays bare the raw and natural beauty of a roughly hewn piece of mahogany coloured granite and the companion it has spawned. As a counterpoint, a man-made bronze form creates a unity of opposites: a perfect jigsaw fit if the two halves were united. Perhaps they are drifting apart, or coming together: nature and the man-made world, traditional and technological.
