On the symbolic level, the erection of certain lines and geometrical forms constitutive of architectural work intents to prolong the metaphors “immanentes” with the building and its immediate context. Indeed, with the evocations of a stream of water, old Backwater and ship hull, the sculpture proposes - with the same degree of abstraction - the idea of the ship masts, that of a water plant with a sinuous stem, and then again, the idea of an insect “archiptère” - named young lady or dragonfly - to the transparent and ribbed wings which haunt readily the marshes. The poetry of chance comes to clarify this last symbol through its etymology: dragonfly comes from Latin, "level", because of its horizontal gliding flight, which brings us back to the initial idea of horizontality and water stream, while the flight, in general, reminds us of movement, displacement, voyage, and thus reminds us of the subway.

Should we add that the central part of the sculpture, its heart to some extent, is also a homage to Brancusi through a free quotation of its bird? Bird which does nothing but deploy the metaphorical way of flight and movement.
