Catalogue Note

"The sculpture which moves me most is full blooded and self-supporting, fully in the round, that is, its component forms are completely realised and work as masses in opposition, not being merely indicated by surface cutting in relief; it is not perfectly symmetrical, it is static and it is strong and vital, giving out something of the energy and power of great mountains. It has a life of its own, independent of the object it represents.”  
 Henry Moore in Henry Moore, On Being a Sculptor (Artist’s Writings), London, 2010, n.p.
