Abakanowicz' previous work,

    for example, 'Flock' from 1990
    in burlap and resin
    12 standing figures
    collection of the artist

    looks a lot like her Chicago work

    but here she may have been inspired by local guy, Ernest Hemingway, as in


    Unlike the figures in 'Flock' ours are armless.

    So I'm reminded of

    and those great lyrics by Leo Robin..

    "Venus de Milo was noted for her charms,
    But strictly between us, you're cuter than Venus,
    And what's more you got arms."


    But seriously, When Magdalena Abakanowicz was nine years old, she watched Nazis shoot off the arm of her mother.
