It is composed of a bronze sculpture measuring 1. 65 m tall and 2. 20 m wide that rests on a rectangular red granite plinth, the surface glistened by flowing water. The sculpture was cast using a lost-wax (cire-perdue) process, and the plinth made of Argentinian granite with a polished mirror-like surface and roughly hewn sides. The sculpture and plinth are mounted on a concrete base that contains a hidden water-pump that decalcifies and recirculates the water.
