  2. Oh wow, I just picked up a book on Henry Moore from the library... mostly because the man on the cover looked like my grandpa.... and discovered what a completely awesome sculptor he was. Had no idea he did textiles, although it seems not many people did. Can't wait to tell my sculpture teacher.
