An abstract sculpture of a figure in a reclining stance by American artist Vernon Voelz (1920-1994). Made in 1972, this work stylizes the body through its use of curved lines, a pinwheel-shaped form, and the absence of bodily detail. This bronze work rests upon a signed and dated base.

Born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Vernon Voelz was interested in art from a young age. After serving in World War II, he attended the Art Institute of Chicago where he graduated from in 1952. Voelz was a devoted member of the Bahá’í faith and in addition to signing all of his pieces, he would date them with the Bahá’í year. In 1968, the Bahá’í National Spiritual Assembly requested Voelz to create the awards the Assembly gave out during their Human Rights Awards Banquet, a task which Voelz continued doing for several years. During his life, Voelz also exhibited his work in Washington D.C. and New York City.
