Looks a bit like a tone chart.
from the Museum web site:
Little is known about the designer of this table, which is both a functional piece of furniture and a fantastical Surrealist sculpture. The glass tabletop rests improbably atop small balls balanced on the tips of three delicately tapering fingers, generating a sensation of tension and unease. Disembodied hands and gloves are recurrent motifs in Surrealist art, with the left hand, in particular, symbolizing the irrational. The cloudlike element from which the hand emerges also suggests a transition from the conscious to the subconscious world.
Seeing this on the web, I think I may have overdone the clarity and structure.
Saw the Mapplethorpe exhibit while at the Guggenheim, which of course inspired me to shoot square portraits in black and white.
The Guggenheim is such a designed space that one can hardly look in any direction without seeing an abstract composition. I never fail to take such pictures at each visit.
