Sources LH, fig. 1 from FM, fig. 2 from LH.
Notes LH notes, "Variable in appearance, for example the illustration from the 1973 Gimpel and Hanover Gallery catalogue [fig. 3] and the photograph of the 1994 Arnhem show that appeared in De Jongh-Vermeulen's 1994 Vrii Nederland article [fig. 4]".

"The [second] image (taken by Florette Dijkstra) shows 'Sphere Raised by Tension of Curved Line' at the Arnhem show, in the same position as the image from the De Jongh-Vermeulen article, however the angle of the shot gives the sculpture an entirely different appearance. The middle photograph above shows the sculpture arranged into a different form all together. This is to assume that the Gimpel and Hanover Gallery sculpture is the same object as the Arnhem one. This work can be seen on a table in a photograph taken of Moss's Lamorna studio in the fifties", see fig. 5.
