Famous Henry Moore sculpture is famously restored


After living right outside the British House of Lords for over 45 years, the large bronze called Knife-Edge Two-Piece was inevitably covered in filth and decay. In early 2013 it received a thorough cleaning and restoration, at a cost of over £16,000. This included an extra £5 for the wax job 😉

The next time you visit London, you will be able to see this sculpture gleaming in its original 1967 condition (it is located on Abington Street Gardens).
