This small sculpture is a model for a larger scheme. It won an Honorable Mention in the Unknown Political Prisoner competition. The artist was an Italian who had spent time in Paris after World War II widening his experience of contemporary art. He described the sculpture as an attempt to render homage to the prisoners who have suffered in all concentration camps. The work shows a figure lying down surrounded by barbed wire, as if in a confining cage. The finished work would have been very large and was designed without a base in order to rest directly on grass.
