Tall Star
An abstract sculpture made of polished metal poles of long and short lengths connected with wire; three of the long poles are arranged in a tripod configuration and form the base of the sculpture while three more long poles are arranged above this in an inverse tripod, intersecting with the bottom poles. Six short lengths of pole surround the center of the form where the long poles meet. All of these poles are connected by wire running geometrically from end to end.
