sculpture outside sub-station,
Brandon Estate

II

Sculpture. 1961 by Henry Moore, sited 1962 by the London
County Council. Bronze, from carved plaster cast; early eight
feet long on plinth, set on grassy mound. A reclining figure
of two halves, from Moore's first series to explore the
relationship between elements thus disjointed, and based on
studies of bones and flints. Its carved, rugged and
naturalistic quality is well suited to its urban setting.
