I spent part of today at Pallant House Gallery for the Leon Underwood exhibition.   The artist was an admirer of Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity and undertones of scientific thought are  present in some of his work.

In this particular sculpture 'Nucleus', Underwood returns to themes of embryonic human form visible here carved into the surface of this piece.
