Reclining Woman by Henry Moore in Leeds, England

The monument below was created by the famous English Sculptor named Henry Moore. I even made another picture from the description of this monument so that I won't forget it. I need the help of the experts from wikipedia to know more about Henry Moore. Below is the Reclining Woman made of Bronze given by The Henry Moore Foundation.
Henry Spencer Moore OM CH FBA (30 July 1898 – 31 August 1986) was an English sculptor and artist. He was best known for his abstract monumental bronze sculptures which are located around the world as public works of art.

His forms are usually abstractions of the human figure, typically depicting mother-and-child or reclining figures. Moore's works are usually suggestive of the female body, apart from a phase in the 1950s when he sculpted family groups. His forms are generally pierced or contain hollow spaces. Many interpreters liken the undulating form of his reclining figures to the landscape and hills of his birthplace, Yorkshire. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Moore

these photos were taken during my visit in Leeds last November 2008.
