First Version

A first version of the sculpture was completed in 1978. It had been ordered by the government of Luxembourg as a present to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. It is made out of pink marble and can be found in the concert hall.

Second Version

Eight years later, in 1986, a second version made out of bronze was erected in front of the city hall in Strassen, Luxembourg, on a pedestal of granite, which contains the name of the sculpture and the artist (Lucien Wercollier sculpteur). The sculpture itself is signed with LW 1986.
