The present work was completed in the artist's 80th year, a year when she hardly showed signs of slowing down. In 1980, Nevelson participated in no fewer than 12 group shows, had four solo exhibitions and installed two large scale public art installations.

"I go to the sculpture, and my eye tells me what is right for me. When I compose, I don't have anything but the material, myself, and an assistant. I compose right there while the assistant hammers. Sometimes it's the material that takes over; sometimes it's me that takes over. I permit them to play, like a seesaw. I use action and counteraction, like in music, all the time. Action and counteraction. It was always a relationship - my speaking to the wood and the wood speaking back to me."
- Louise Nevelson, in Dawns & Dusks by Diana MacKown, 1976, p. 120
