The Soporific figure depicts two sleeping figures, one upright from a reclining position and the other up side down, balancing on her elbow. The unusual positioning of the figures create the perception of a waking figure, similar to the feeling of being awake when one is actually dreaming. Sleeping and the dream state are closely associated with the subconscious, and the sculpture explores this theme.
