Chadwick made a series of works like this on different scales; the largest is 90 inches (228 cm) high. It stands a little like a human figure or an animal but resists any direct association with a particular living creature. It is brilliantly ambiguous in its suggestive forms: the iron rods could be seen as ribs or as some sort of cage. The chunk of glass gives it a mystical or ritualistic feel, while its title suggests a psychological dimension.
