This piece named itself. The sharply increasing angles on each successively taller vertical shaft catch and sweep the eye upward. The final apex is a sharp intimidating point.

Viewed at night, the black body of the piece disappears and the bank of 16 lights seems to float above the surface,
filling the room with an ominous glow. While each shaft appears delicate, this piece is very strong, aggressive, and masculine. It is the embodiment of the concept behind an empire.
