Henry Moore's Arch

Henry Moore - The Arch (1980) I.C. enhancedThis is Henry Moore's The Arch (1980) modelled on sheep collar bones. It stood on the bank of the Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park, London, until 1996, when its structure was deemed unsafe and it was dismantled. Thanks to the wonders of modern rock-engineering technology for heritage conservation, this ghastly monstrosity could be re-erected in its original position. Why? Couldn't we find something better to put in its place?
