In this work by Impy Pilapil, one of the leading sculptors practicing today, the fall of water into a cataract is approximated, which is evoked here as the rock base of this stand-alone sculpture. Adorning the clear, curvilinear glass, the green, globular crystals suggest the areas in which the waterfall catches the light and returns it as shimmer to the eye.
