Not so much a sculpture to be observed but rather an arrangement of forms on an architectural scale to be experienced by walking around and through them, these over-lapping shapes can be interpreted as male and female elements about to fuse in some erotic coupling of monumental intensity. Large Two Forms needs space, allowing the piece to be seen at a distance and understood close to.
