More Information

King & Queen were placed majestically at the entrance to the Park, while Locking Piece, The Arch and several upright works, including Knife Edge, stood out against the Yorkshire skyline.

Both the selection and siting were designed to illustrate the relationship between Henry Moore and landscape, demonstrating that the appropriate environment is crucial to an overall enjoyment and understanding of the work.
