The wood, from a large split trunk or thick bough, has been cut so as to look like a square above a base. The negative space was probably indicated to the artist by organic erosion. The wood was scraped or brushed to enhance the natural, rough texture and then sealed.
The curved side has a cluster or forged iron nails driven into a natural depression--like a sun of spikes in a brown sky.
The flat side is studded with about one hundred 3/4" iron pegs or rivets, more or less evenly, over the whole wavy surface.
This abstract wood sculpture is unsigned. All that is known about the artist is she lived in Pennsylvania and created this in the 1970s. Her name is unknown. This Brutalist sculpture has a unique rough-hewn beauty and is expressive of the energy and resilience of nature.
