The way this evocation of an insect hovers, suspended only at one point to the side, is testimony to Chadwick’s engineering skills. It is made up of a network of welded iron rods, suggesting the body’s structure, with the suspended, fish-like elements counterbalanced by its weighted tail. The result is a finely balanced work of art that can rotate so that its movement, as much as its form, suggests the predatory prowling of an insect.
