The perspective projects the circular forms as two elliptical segments. This perspective aid is put to work in more cases by Lucien den Arend. Not seldom his patrons, and even colleagues who advise them, ask him whether the proposed work could need a little more animation. As scale model a form consisting of the most elementary shapes can indeed look somewhat unexciting. But on a large scale the effect is sometimes unbelievably exhilarating.
