'Winged Figure' is a concave form of two wing-like projections of unequal height, joined in the middle. The wings curve outwards away from the building on the vertical axis, and curve in towards each other at the top and bottom. Both wings are pierced with an irregularly shaped hole. Fine steel rods connect the wings diagonally at opposing points along their outer edge, an arrangement which creates a sense of twisting movement and flow. The back of the piece is fixed to the wall, but it also stands on a small, inverted L-shaped bracket. The sculpture, its plinth, and the applied raised lettering beneath it, form part of the Grade II* listing.
