Some art critics have interpreted Three Points as a threatening form. Others have seen it as an expression of sexual tension, in dialogue with surrealist imagery of the 1930s. Henry Moore himself commented: ‘This pointing has an emotional or physical action in it where things are just about to touch but don’t... like the points in the sparking plug of a car... the spark has to jump across the gap.’
