The artist is the owner of a forge, where metal is heated and formed by hammering and pressure. This sculpture is solid steel and its shape and surface textures are made by forging. The piece refers to time and asks viewers to think about time, measured in terms of millennia. The sculpture is designed so that it acts as a solar observatory. By facing each element of the sculpture and looking at the horizon you can find the location of the sunrise and sunset for each season of the year.
