The present work forms part of a series of similar pyramid constructions made by Chadwick in 1965, evolving from the spikey, chard-like forms of the previous year. Whilst this work is unique, an edition of six similar sculptures was cast in bronze and awarded the same title (exhibited at The Marlborough New London Gallery, October - November 1966).
