In the early 1970s Moore produced a group of monumental sculptures relying heavily on the curve or arc as its principal motif. This work, in the company of Sheep Piece 1971-72 and Hill Arches 1973, exemplifies the trend, its complex semi-abstract composition and highly polished bronze patina making it a ‘difficult’ work to read. The hollows, voids and truncated elements do, however, bind together very successfully to make a sculpture filled with warmth and movement. Moore successfully reused the central lobe-like feature in Mother and Child 1978 without compromising its sense of mystery or significance.
