The figure was originally conceived by Saar as part of a tableau entitled Crossroads, which was recreated in the museum in 1993. In the context of the other works, this piece represented the products of man, which the artist notes can be used for good (tools) or evil (weapons).  Opposite him there stood a sculpture of a woman with long roots extending from her legs downward to denote nature.
