Whereas the inwardly pointing conical spikes in Three Points create a sense of anticipation and anxiety, the present work conversely bursts with energy. “Here again the points are used to give action,” explained Moore. “Inwards in the case of the Three Points, but here to give action outwards” (ibid., p. 214).
Moore was a public art enthusiast and took a keen interest in how and where his pieces were sited. All seven casts of his Large Spindle Piece (1974) are on public view today, one outside King’s Cross Station in London on loan from the Henry Moore Foundation and the remaining six on display in the United States, Japan and Saudi Arabia.
