The fourth sculpture of the ARTWALK in Lech is based on the personal experience of commissioner Ingo Strolz. An adventurous car rally posing numerous challenges to the hotelier led to intense questions about goals in life.

In addition, the fact that there is lots of snow on the Arlberg in winter had to be considered.
The small ribbons and rods of the artwork– their airiness symbolising the lines on a globe – make the steel seem unusually light. At the same time, the coordinates of the home of Ingo Strolz are a gift for the much-travelled man.
