While abstract art has a tendency to leave plenty to the imagination and convey different feelings for different people, Reclining Connected Forms 1969 – 1974 by Henry Moore allows you to see the embrace of a protective mother. The piece can be perceived as a child in a womb or as a protection of that which we covet. The scale allows the viewer to imagine the progression from pregnancy to infancy.

Reclining Connected Forms measures approximately 10 feet tall by 17 feet long by 7 feet deep. It is said to be a primary example of the theme of his life’s work which were inspired by the fundamentals of human experience. His signature form is a reclining figure of which he is said to have been influenced by the ancient cultures of Egypt and pre-Columbian Mexico.

Henry Moore (1896-1986) was quite a celebrated sculptor whose works can now be viewed around the world.

Reclining Connected Forms, by Henry Moore will be situated in the park between ARIA and Crystals. The piece is sculpted using Roman travertine marble.
