Henry Moore is considered one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. Born in Castleford/UK in 1898, Henry Moore and Hermann Noack have enjoyed a close collaboration and friendship since the 1970s.

Many sculptures were "born" at Noack, including classics such as reclining figure, large two forms or big butterfly, which are prominently displayed on all continents of the world.

Henry Moore had his late work cast by us. He was a great fan of polished, smooth surfaces and the golden patina, which is particularly successful on the "Big Butterfly" in front of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of World Cultures).
