The chair sculpture is a combination of the old and new. Congresswoman Pressley has a very strong grounding in African-American ideas of narrative, justice, and social empowerment. Marlon named his chair the "Black Butterfly"; he emphasizes the name with a butterfly wing shaped back. He combined the old with new by using wood and steel. The armrests on the chair are a combination of black leather and metal. Black metal beads drip from the butterfly wings, reminiscent of the brilliant braided hair for which the Congresswoman was known when running for election.
