• Outstanding early composition, which, owing to its repertoire of forms and its translucid weightlessness, anticipates key elements of Winter's famous cycle "Triebkräfte der Erde" (Driving Forces of the Earth, 1944)
• Early documents of Winter's masterly orchestration of gently superimposing crystalline forms over a dark earthen ground
• In this work Winter realized a composition characterized by an inner glow and metaphysic presence that is comparable with the cycle "Treibkräfte der Erde" from 1944
• Winter showed works in the USA in two exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, as early as in the 1950s
