my thoughts
My Thoughts

I think that this piece of art is an abstract piece, because there is no specific object that looks like this. Also, it is hard to imagine something that this would be useful for in real life. I chose this artwork because it used common shapes like cones, squares and circles in a new way, which made them thought-provoking and interesting. I think that the artist is trying express that in construction, there are many new, artistic designs and he tried to portray them all in one artwork, hence the name.
