Paolozzi''s fascination with junk and other discarded materials is evident in this early sculpture. Apart from the base, all the sections were cast from objects he found lying around his studio in Paris, where he was living. They include what appear to be machine parts and bits of wood, combined to suggest a metallic bird in flight.
