Large Reclining Figure, Singapore Overview

The Large Reclining Figure is a sculpture - a flexuous-abstract-human figure, built by Henry Moore. Perceived mostly in a human form, the figure has a notch at the head that resembles a widely divided hoof. It is then followed by a narrowed torso with a suspended bosom. The left arm is rested on the ground while the right one is connected to a pelvis that is reclining on the ground. From the pelvis is an extended bone which represents a limb, stretching to one side.

Moore made a lead maquette version of the Large reclining figure in 1938, which measure only up to 13 inches. This replica was sold to the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1939. Furthermore, an addition of 9 more bronze sculptures was cast in 1946. On such example is the Peggy Guggenheim Collection of Venice and the other is the Leeds Art Gallery, in the year 1991. There  Kew Gardens also displayed a 30 feet long white fibreglass version of the enlarged sculpture.
