“I started making little models, maquettes, of things with an armature … modelled directly with plaster over wire netting… I started joining figures together compulsively and did it more and more.  Two or three figures would be unified into one mass, and then I could arrange the arms and legs as I wanted, because if you look at a crowd, you do not count the arms and legs, you just see odd arms swinging and the odd leg moving… And then, one day in London, looking out of the window on a very windy day I saw a woman walking, holding two children, all three leaning against the wind, and this gave me an idea: I started making tiny maquettes with, I think, three figures with long necks, and they had a little bunch of arms in the front, extended forward with hands…” (the Artist in Tamsyn Woollcombe (ed.), Kenneth Armitage, Life and Work, The Henry Moore Foundation in association with Lund Humphries, London, 1997, p.26)
