Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas: 16 reviews and 21 photos


This piece was designed by Alexander Calder of painted steel in 1970. Calder was trained as an engineer and has an interest in technological processes of constructions. The arrangement of these pieces sort of suggests a large animal as you walk around it. The name comes from the three knobby protrusions at the top which resemble post for typing up boats at a jetty.
