This sculpture represents a star. The star has exploded and is falling from the sky, consuming itself. Only the husk will be destroyed, but the essence of the star, its energy, is infinite. It will find a new incarnation; it will rise again as a new star. Energy is the absolute. Its falling is not destruction, but the beginning of a new life.
