Artwork Detail Request a print

This figure was included in the first exhibition of contemporary sculpture ever mounted in New Zealand, at the Auckland Art Gallery in 1955. Macalister's rounded forms show the artist's knowledge of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Yet, her awareness is extended into the Pacific by the female figure's votively expressive pose and its astonishingly smoothness and warm patina.
