This innovative and highly accurate presentation of Henry Moore’s Recumbent Figure 1938 allows user to explore the virtual work from all angles – including underneath – none of which would be possible with the real object.

This Shockwave 3D model of the sculpture was made in conjunction with the interactive production company Juniperblue, who have carefully reconstructed the sculpture using an innovative mixture of computer-aided design and digital-imaging techniques.
