This 1959 bronze represents a major turning point in Etrog's career, for up to that point he had been making painted, mostly two-dimensional constructions. While studying in New York, he was deeply moved by three-dimensional sculpture from Africa and South America - the Pre-Columbian figures in particular.
With this dazzlingly complex sculpture, Etrog launched a new direction for himself and his work. In relatively short order he had done a large-scale version from the maquette and casts quickly found their way to the Hirshhorn Museum and sculpture garden in Washington, D. C. and to the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, among other important public and private collections.
