|Notes||LH notes, "It is apparent in Florette Dijkstra's photographs of this piece in the Tate Store that the
spherical part of the sculpture is penetrated by a conical hole, and that the colour of the metal is warm and brass-like". [fig. 2]
The plinth has been adjusted since the photograph that appears in the 1958 Hanover Gallery
"The conical hole is also visible in [fig. 3]. It is this image that appears in Hammacher 1967. Documentation of this work exists in the Tate Archives: an acquisition report, and several letters between Richard Morphet Assistant Keeper of the Tate and Erica Brausen".
