Organic curves dominate this work. In the lower part, Beuys has used liquid fat to create shapes which have been echoed in the curved lines of the pencil drawing above. The materials Beuys used were always selected for their particular significance to the artist. Fat represented fuel and nurturing, but also was associated with producing warm, chaotic energy. To complement this, copper, as an excellent conductor of electricity and heat, can transmit this energy. The title of this work translates as 'Breath'.
