The hanging sculpture is intended to stand out from and blend with its environment simultaneously. It reflects both the symbolic and formal qualities of “new leaves.” The diamond form alludes to youth as “diamonds in the rough.” The power the court holds and the discipline necessary for youth are conveyed by the geometric forms of the sculpture.
