Self-Scape #3

Detail showing pressure being exerted on the two opposing glass plates. Through the application of this pressure, they are being held securely in place in order not to fall and be destroyed on the floor. At the same time, they endure the stresses imposed upon them, causing each to bend under the pressure.
