    Creating in a wide variety of media, Kiki Smith has developed a significant body of work that explores the human condition, spirituality, and the natural world. Smith represents the human body in unconventional ways to invoke themes of beliefs and storytelling. As in many of her works, Moon on Crutches Figure 2, 2002, features a female figure. Created in cast aluminum, she appears to float impassively, suspended from the ground over a thicket of metal, which may be said to operate like metaphorical crutches.
