In this image from the 2014 Continuum gallery, the sculpture has been put on the pedestal against the wall so that it can't be knocked into. The bird pictures by artist Anthony Burks, on the right, are treated like an installation and were arranged and hung by him.
Notice that the sides of the paintings are finished and they have the same visual line down the wall.
