In this late work, Etrog returned to the theme of coupling through the representation of a king and queen. To create this large-scale work, he extended his vocabulary by utilizing the rivet, an ancient technique, which was used to connect flat shapes prior to the invention of welding. Here Etrog used the rivet not just as a structural device but also as a stylistic element to depict details such as the eyes of the figures.
