Brigitte Eva Gisela Schittenhelm (1908 – 1996 ) was a German actress, most famous for her role as Maria in Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent film, Metropolis.

After Metropolis, which was her second film, Helm made over 30 other films, including talking pictures, before retiring in 1936.

Her other appearances include The Love of Jeanne Ney (1927), Alraune (1928), Gloria (1931), The Blue Danube (1932) and Gold (1934).

In 1935, angered by Nazi control of the German film industry, she moved to Switzerland where she later had 4 children with her second husband Dr. Hugo Kunheim, an industrialist. After her retirement from films she refused to grant any interviews concerning her film career.

Henry Spencer Moore OM CH FBA (1986) was an English sculptor and artist. He was best known for his semi-abstract monumental bronze sculptures which are located around the world as public works of art.

His forms are usually abstractions of the human figure, typically depicting mother-and-child or reclining figures. Moore’s works are usually suggestive of the female body, apart from a phase in the 1950s when he sculpted family groups. His forms are generally pierced or contain hollow spaces. Many interpreters liken the undulating form of his reclining figures to the landscape and hills of his birthplace, Yorkshire.
