The theme of sculpture as landscape also is found in Gérard's 1996 Rain Chariot, which consists of a pair of corroded iron wheel-and-axle assemblies that support a plate of glass sandblasted with the image of falling raindrops. The latter image was inspired by photographs Gérard made of raindrops striking the windows of a moving train. Once again, Gérard's work blends nature and industry into a poetic whole.
