Head Girl

By baclark
Hi all, many thanks for the C&C's on - Moore Textures. Yes it may well make another appearance at some point as a textured layer!

Today more Henry Moore, this is entitled 'Large Totem Head' from 1968 and is a bronze which stands 244cm high. The shape of the sculpture reminds me of a pear.

This young lady was sketching the piece and I waited ages for other people to move away for a clear view. I had hoped to get a shot of her drawing too. But the lines were very feint and she only just started. I looked again a few minutes later but she had gone. Perhaps she had the feeling someone was watching! Wink

V2 a close up of the sculpture, not as much DoF as I wanted but worth a share.
Have a good day all.

It's funny how we can look at an object and see different things. Before I read your write-up, I saw it as looking up a pair of nostrils from underneath! Grin Two great captures, Barbara, really like the tones and textures in the V2 close-up, so that's my fave today Smile

I agree with Trev about how we see different things Barbara.
My thought was some sort of ''double'' coffin here !!
Like the abstract V2.

Definitely totemic, the first word that sprang to mind. Great stuff.

Two good images, Barbara! The 1st image is a nice perspective shot, and the details of the sculpture in the second is excellent!
