bronze

In my sculpture there are three recurring themes: mother with child; the reclining figure; large form protecting small form. In this sculpture I have united all three motifs. I draw on human feelings, on the primary feelings of man. The need of protection is one of these feelings or primary instincts.

Henry Moore quoted from an interview with Constanzo Costantini in Il Messagero, Rome, 10th April 1974
