This is a guide to Moore's sculptures on public display throughout the world. We strive to ensure that all information is accurate, however we recommend that you contact each venue before making a visit. Please also contact us if you spot any mistakes. In some instances it has not been possible to source an image of the actual sculpture in-situ, and on such occasions an alternative image has been used.
I was very relieved to find it right in its size and in its colour. You have the strong big powerful forms of the building. I didn’t want the sculpture so underdone that it’s weak. It may seem to some people abstract but it’s not. It’s all organic form. You might say it’s like a whale coming out of water. I have no objection if somebody wants to think of it in that way. Sea animals have to be smooth to go through the water. Or you might think it’s something entirely different. The inspiration is life. I look upon then as life. It couldn’t be what it is unless I had been excited by the humans figure.
