Kinpaku is one of the Motion Series of sculptures. It joins other sculptures that include: Embark, Hansou, Kai, Mizushou, Momentum, Motion, Nami 2, Oonami, Precipice, Skating, Soushi, Soushi2, Triptych, Ugokasu, Ukei,  and Uzushio.

Kinpaku was one of the first Motion Sculptures.  I liked the imminent feel of danger from Kinpaku falling in a twisted direction toward the table. The tension is heightened by the pink triangle that is perched midway up.   Kinpaku is closely related to Soushi, Soushi2 Mizushou, Ukei, and UzushioAll of them share the imminent peril from falling. 

About the Motion Series
Movement is an unusual activity to catch in stone.  Stone Sculpture is noted for being solid, rooted to the ground, and unchanging.  Exploring unanticipated action is the common feature of the Motion Series. A sculpture caught in the act of falling, another sculpture caught just before it is ready to leap off its' base, another seemingly moving effortlessly across its' base.  All of these are displaying that elusive stone quality - movement.
