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.
Moore made a small maquette in 1961 and carved a large marble version ten years later. No matter what its size the work possesses a massive monumental feeling, appearing to have been opened up from the inside with arches, tunnels and ledges as if some inner force is thrusting outwards through a primeval landmass. It is easy to imagine the sculpture large enough to walk into, explore and perhaps get lost inside. Although appearing abstract, its interlocking and interconnecting forms take on human characteristics; suggestions of shoulders and angled joints are never far away.
