Frank draws on her memories, dreams, and myths for the content of her work. Unlike many of her more entirely figurative sculptural pieces of the seventies, 'Sundial’ is a departure from this vein. Highly geometric, a rough-hewn triangular pedestal is topped by an irregular circle with an inset symmetrical triangle encompassing figures of a human, a horse and another bird-like creature sitting atop the horse. Originally made in clay and then cast in bronze, the main column of the piece was made of uneven and joined slab-work in similar triangular configuration as the inset triangle. The upper portion, employing a similar technique, is contrasted by the eminent triangle as the focal point, where the figures reside.
