All of the artworks in the variations contain hand-sculpted paper elements secured with copper wire, making each one unique. The paper elements also make each artwork volumetric. In keeping with El Anatsui's ongoing interest in making works of art that explore the possibility of there being more than one front, the variations reveal two distinct sides. Furthermore, they have multiple orientations, which is a feature that connects them to the celebrated works of his that are made from liquor-bottle caps.

The composition in Variation I_C illustrates El Anatsui's ongoing interest in creating works of art that explore the concepts of the macro and the micro. Because each impression was created with more than one orientation, the project encourages multiple perspectives and is closely aligned with the celebrated works of his that are made from liquor-bottle caps.
