This earlier piece by Hepworth is more typical of her work, which is more often on a smaller scale than the other Hepworth sculptures in the garden. In this piece, Hepworth truly succeeds in creating a work that seems to expand and breathe.
For the Young (and Young at Heart)
What part of your own body expands when you breathe? About which parts of your body does the shape of this piece make you think? There are two other sculptures by Hepworth in the garden. Can you find them?
Barbara Hepworth, England, Epidorous II, 1961; Bronze.
