Lineal Order is composed of three elements: A shadow on the wall; the life-size figure of a man; and a smaller figure of a little boy, both wearing a long coat. Sculpted in bronze, the man is slim, middle-aged, and wears nothing more than an overcoat. Face him and you will notice his shadow on the wall behind him, a silhouette of his timeless figure. There is another bronze figure across from him, not seen in this photograph, this time of a small boy, also nude except for his overcoat. Both the statues are standing in the same position, upright, arms at their sides in a relaxed manner. Unlike the man, the boy does not have wrinkles or physical signs of aging, but he expresses the same haunted expression.
