This sculpture titled Don’t Drop Me by Dominic Benhura depicts a group of three children engaged in lively interaction. In designing this playful paragon of joy, Benhura combined steel, wire, and stone to compose a work of art that practically sings out loud.

Benhura simultaneously captured balance and movement both physically and emotionally through this work. Two children face each other and stand on one leg with the other leg outstretched behind. They both reach up to balance a third playmate between them.
