This abstract bronze sculpture by Henry Moore is called “Large Spindle Piece.” I think it deserves a more creative name than this, so I am asking you all to come up with some possible alternative names for it that have a bit more pizzazz. I read about this piece and it said that in some ways, “it is related to the “Helmet Heads” of the 1950s, which explore the theme of protection and intrusion.” The British sculptor was inspired as a youth by Michelangelo. Jeddah’s Corniche along the Red Sea boasts four abstract bronze works by Moore which are all prominent in the city’s large open air art museum.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
