A steel rack supporting 19 steel spools of various sizes is mounted 24 feet up on the back wall of the room. A wavering line of lead wire descends from each spool; the lines cross as they traverse the space. The lead wires submerge into once-molten reservoirs of lead in fractured limestone slabs strewn across the floor.
