This cast bronze by Barbara Hepworth has been in the Mander Centre since it opened in 1968. I remember it being a much paler green colour but I suppose with the latest 2004 modernisation of the centre it also has had a makeover. This is one of a set of six castings of this 1964 sculpture.
There was some discussion at the time as to whether this was an appropriate sculpture for the centre of a relatively stark late 1960s concrete shopping centre. If anything over the years the various refurbishments of the centre have softened the lines.
