The title and image are from a sculpture in Moore's ever-popular Two Piece Reclining Figure series begun in the late 1950s. Points was first cast in 1969 (LH 606) and is an edition of 7 + 1 AP, with collections including Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen, Munich; Hofgarten, City of Düsseldorf; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.; Hakone Open-Air Museum, Japan; and The Henry Moore Foundation, on loan to Kew Gardens, London. The plaster model is at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Moore stated that in his work he was obsessed by two themes, the Mother and Child and the Reclining Figure. This is a major example of the second theme, with the upright piece representing the head and torso, while the lower piece represents the legs of the figure. Moore's reclining figures are always female because he equated woman with life, survival, fecundity and endurance.' (https://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/moore-two-piece-reclining-figure-no-5-t02294)
