A sculptor talks about his work

THE pyramid shapes of this sculpture intersect randomly to form a mountain range exemplifying the Colorado Rockies. The edges of the pyramids have their natural counterparts in rocky forms and ragged peaks. Their intersections suggest deep canyons and steep cliffs. The sculpture does not extend beyond its base, or imply any such extension, thus echoing the abrupt rise of the Rockies from the flat Colorado plain. The topographical map covers the entire surface of the sculpture. It is intended to indicate human awareness of the terrain, as well as the imprint of human technology. Cities and large population centers are also indicated on the map, and, because these areas are generally located at the base of mountains, I have correspondingly located them near the base of my pyramids.
