The Henry Moore Foundation

The Henry Moore Foundation

The 11ft work, Reclining Figure, made in 1969 out of 2 tons of solid bronze, was winched by crane on to a Mercedes flatbed lorry by three enterprising sculptor fanciers

'Henry's will stipulates that no more bronzes can be cast from his original moulds. If this one is destroyed, that means it is likely to be lost for ever.'
