This narrative steel sculpture represents the recent mortgage crisis.  The man behind bars whose body is a house with a silver dollar sign on it, has obvious symbolism.  The bird is more obscure. It represents "the chickens have come home to roost" meaning the consequences of earlier actions are making themselves felt.
