"About two years ago, Juliette and Julian Huxley, old friends of Henry Moore, gave him an elephant skull. It was a most welcome gift and he noted with characteristic enthusiasm: ‘One finds in it all sorts of qualities that bones generally seem to have, including some parts thick and solid and other parts almost paper thin. Nature's sense of strength and structure is one of the marvellous things that you discover in studying such bones." - Alistair Grant, from the foreword to Elephant Skull: Original Etchings by Henry Moore (exhibition catalogue).

Oval with Points is a series of enigmatic abstract sculptures by British sculptor Henry Moore , made in plaster and bronze from 1968 to 1970, from a 14 centimetres (5.5 in) maquette in 1968 (LH 594) made in plaster and then cast in bronze, through a 110 centimetres (43 in) working model in 1968–69 (LH 595) also made plaster and then cast in bronze, to a full-size 332 centimetres (131 in) bronze version cast in 1969 (LH 596).

The son of a Yorkshire coalmining engineer, after war service in France Henry Moore studied at Leeds School of Art in 1919. In 1921 he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, London. An enthusiastic modernist, Moore kept in touch with European developments and admired the work of the British sculptors Epstein, Gaudier­ Brzeska and Gill.
