Another curator suggested the tower represented an oil derrick. (It´s not, Allen said.)

“They have something within themselves that is reflected in what they see, and they might go on to question that."
She conceded that the tower itself is a symbol of knowledge. “But are these figures striving for something on a tower chopped off at the top? Or, why are they escaping from the water?”
Allen has participated in more than 37 public exhibitions, more than 19 solo shows and about 32 group ones, according to the artist.
