"Henry Moore (1898 - 1986) was one of the outstanding sculptors of the 20th century. His work has had a strong influence on contemporary figural sculpture.

An important and lasting influence on Moore's work was the world of nature. 'The human figure', he wrote, 'is what interests me most deeply, but I have found principles of form and rhythm from the study of natural objects, such as pebbles, rocks, bones, trees, plants.'

There were six cast, the one in Wellington is No 4.
