Endless Column

Brancusi made several versions of his Endless Column, this one being the first he fully developed. It consists of a single symmetrical element, a pair of truncated pyramids stuck together at their base, then repeated to produce a continuous rhythmic line. In replicating the same abstract shape, Brancusi emphasized its potential for vertical expansion—it was, he later said, a “column for infinity.”

Isamu Noguchi's artwork, Helix of the Endless,  is inspired by the idea of Endless Column. It made of parts, replaceable and extensible, is ever intriguing. He wanted to give torque to Brancusi’s. The form a sculpture was best met by Brancusi with his Endless Column.
