Web Description: 
The study of gesture and mood, rather than the suggestion of human form, is the subject of this abstract torso. The title, attractive color, and self-confident posture of the sculpture beckon the viewer to come near. At close range, however, the torso’s rough surface, its unwieldy shape, and its projecting arms visually push us away, keeping all at a distance.
