The sculpture presents the generic form of a human head, without certain characteristics such as face, ears, and hair. It is built up of light-colored ash discs stacked one upon the other. These are not necessarily uniform and show cracks and the marks where they have been worked. The flat wooden discs are attached at a certain distance to one another so that in between the gaps the central core of the sculpture is revealed.

Through systematic gaps between the sections, which recall the rhythm of a medieval triptych, Alfred Haberpointner lends an intense aura to the simple material of wood.
