Mahogany, paint | 10.75 x 2.5 x 2.5 in/27.3 x 6.3 x 6.3 cm

Building on the forms explored in the New Horizons piece "Cubism", this piece has elements that aren't geometric and contains more elements. The overall intent is to create a more seemingly precarious structure. The inside corners are highlighted with the use of paint for emphasis.
