A new documentary looks at British sculptor Henry Moore's large brick wall relief into Joost Boks' Bouwcentrum (Construction Centre) building. Moore was commissioned for the project in 1954 and the piece includes approximately 16,000 hand-carved bricks, according to Sculpture International Rotterdam. Moore, the son of a coal miner, is perhaps best known for his work in bronze, often capturing the human form and the relief embodies his style. The original building was demolished in 2010, with the sculpture to be reincorporated into the new building facade. The documentary is produced by ARTtube, and architectural historian Wouter Vanstiphout narrates. Moore himself passed away in 1986 but his legacy lives on through his work and the Henry Moore Foundation, supporting education and promotion of the arts.
