90 equal laminations, each a year of age, from infancy (0-1 year) to the 90th year, moving from the thin end to the thick.The width of each section is determined by the average (1976 to 1998) number of non-gun homicides per year for people at that age. The vertical dimension is set by the number of gun homicides.The height of the arch is the number of shooters in that same age bracket. The left end of the sculpture depicts infanticide and the right end eldercide.
