Meadows was studio assistant to Henry Moore from 1936-39 and remained a close friend. He was Professor of Sculpture at the Royal College of Art from 1960-1980.

The slender, fragile legs of this seated figure contrast sharply with the bulky armoured mass of the torso. The bulbous shoulders with their jutting spikes obscure the head.

On loan from the Keatley Trust.
