This three dimensional structure has steam-piston-like objects that line the periphery of the piece, a tribute to the ornate steamboats that once traveled the nearby Ohio River. This structure resembles “floating palace” used to transport industrious Thomas Gaff’s goods. The porch of his two-story bears a more-than-passing resemblance of the deck of a steamboat.
