The installation includes a long harvest-style table, covered in deep-blue table cloth. On top of the cloth lay a porcelain water-lily painted red, 21 white porcelain water-lily pads, and one porcelain cast beaver. A bronze coyote is positioned next to the table, poised in supsended animation of a moment tugging at the cloth which threatens to bring the delicate porcelain pieces crashing to the floor.
