Provenance: acquired directly from the artist by Barrie Liss, 13 July 1963 (£4.4s.0d.)

About the interlocking figures they are difficult to make entirely successfully owing to distortion in the kiln. An intentional characteristic of them (a psychological one?) is that they should stand firmly together but not when separated (Letter to Barrie Liss, 21 July 1963).
