This polished and lacquered bronze sculpture was modelled in 1966 and cast in 1968. Meadows polished the bronze to maximise the metal's natural, golden colour and used different textures to emphasise the forms. He began to use abstract shapes in his sculpture to express human fear and anxiety during the mid-1960s. In this work, the two hard and solid shapes appear to be squashing a rounded shape which looks as if it is crying help.
