In his sculptures, César combined abstract structures with images evocative of a figurative subject. This approach is characteristic of many artists of this period. He also sought techniques capable of bridging the gap between modern technologies and art. In this work a formal, expressive interest is created by the technique of welding small pieces of steel together to make a large panel. It was César's intention to evoke an imaginary animal, resembling a moth with body and wings.
