Eva Hesse rejected the geometric shapes and industrial materials favored by Minimalist artists, instead creating eccentric, tactile forms often arranged as if by chance. The title derives from the plural of a Latin word for "protuberance," and suggests a variety of anatomical and botanic associations for this psychologically charged sculpture.
