Pye is noted for his use of highly polished steel. In this work he has incorporated a curved sheet of steel which reflects and distorts both the viewer and the sculpture's surroundings. These change as one walks around the piece, adding a further sense of movement to the springing tubular form. There are also some ambiguous negative spaces ingeniously created by the reflections of the tubular forms in the sculpture's base.
