Large Totem Head


This sculpture by Henry Moore.  The museum has the largest collection of Henry Moore sculptures outside of his home country of England.  When I moved to Kansas City in 1995 and first visited The Nelson-Atkins and the sculpture park, it was called the Henry Moore sculpture park.  Tomorrow I will bring you the lastest sculpture added to the park last year.

I probably lack imagination but what I see here is some sort of nutshell, albeit a very nice one!

it DOES kinda look like a nutshell!

I have to agree with Ciel and Tanya. It makes me thing of a pecan shell.

Looks like it would be very smooth to the touch!

Always liked Moore's work, but I haven't seen this one before. Well done.

I have never seen one like this either. Good post Regina.

It looks like a big seed pod. But it's pretty cool!

Interesting piece and title.

I would not have identified this as a work by Henry Moore. It seems more delicate than usual.
