For Students K-12
- Traditionally, artists carve or chisel wood when they use it for sculptures. How is this wooden sculpture different from traditional ones?
- How do you think the pieces of wood are held together? Carl Andre assembled Pyramid (Square Plan) by stacking interlocking blocks of wood into a double pyramid pattern, with the weight of the material alone binding the work together.
- Is there a front or back to this piece? Explain your answer. Where do you see examples of symmetry in this work?
- This sculpture is considered a "single, unified image." What does that phrase mean for the sculpture?
