The structure of this beautiful tapestry finds its roots in Vasarely's Black-White Period (1951-63); the image of a three-dimensional circular form emerging from a flat surface can be traced back to works created during this time. Exploring what he terms dualities of, "'good and evil,' 'beautiful and ugly,' and 'physical and psychological,' Vasarely creates a binary work.

Since Vega-Pal is rendered in color, these dualities lose their either-or connotation. However, the themes remain. What initially appears to be an optical geometric statement reveals itself as a message, a reminder to consider "complementary opposites, two sides of the same coin" (Vasarely, 1955). Light and dark areas advance and recede in the viewer's line of sight creating a visual push and pull connected to the structural themes of the human world.
