Whereas the original version was cast in bronze, this one has been painstakingly constructed by Little Halstock using hand-selected flitches of European burr walnut applied to thirty-three pieces of solid brass that pivot from a central point. Every other leaf is book-matched, giving the appearance of movement as the piece spirals through the laminations. Masur birch has been applied to the back of each leaf, contrasting with burr walnut to dynamic effect. Each piece in the series is hand-constructed and therefore unique. Presented on a black Nero Marquina marble plinth signed by the artist.

Thomas Joyne’s sculpture speaks of balance, poise, rhythm and flow, and translates as well to table-top pieces as to large, outdoors commissions.
