La Fuerza. Victor Salmones, Mexican. 1977. Gift of The Meadows Foundation.
The strength of this sculpture is achieved by the unique combination of dynamic rhythm and fluid solidity.

Texas Stele Ruin. Jesus Bautista Moroles, American. 1997. 
Morales creates his large scale sculptures from granite. His abstract forms combine smooth, polished surfaces with roughly carved, seemingly torn edges, evoking a sense of past and present, weight and weightlessness, man and nature working together.
