The painting depicts the entryway of a New England home with colonial furnishings typical of the 1930s. The doorway opens to reveal an eerie scene of a carpeted stairway surrounded by a vast sea. The wallpaper and walls gradually fade to reveal water, imagery which may suggest Guglielmi’s view of the erosion of American culture and values during the Depression.

The applied patina on the welded bronze form creates a thick, textural surface that reflects Bertoia’s influence of nature and organicism. The form, reminiscent of a small bird, has a playful and whimsical quality
