Through this sculpture of a tortoise, Moore sought to express ideas about the relationship of abstract forms. He wrote about the idea behind the work as follows: ‘It is one right-angled form, repeated five times, and arranged together to make an organic composition. This repeated slow right-angle reminded me of the action of a tortoise.’
