Bourgeois created this composition, printed on paper, as a 2004 holiday gift for a circle of friends. In the same year, she created another composition on fabric, Untitled (Descriptive Title: Hand Holding Tree), for a selected, smaller group of friends.
It should be noted that states II and III, and one variant of state IV, are printed on fabric but the edition was ultimately published on paper.
