Sea Form (Atlantic) (BH 362) is a 1964 bronze sculpture by English artist Barbara Hepworth. It measures 204 cm × 107 cm × 73 cm (80 in × 42 in × 29 in). The sculpture comprises a single large curved free-standing form, similar to a shield, with contrasting rough and smooth surfaces with brown or green patination, and five pierced apertures that resemble holes in a sea shell. Like Hepworth's Single Form (1961), it was based on Neolithic standing stones at Chûn Castle hillfort site in West Cornwall. It was part of a series of sculptures that took inspiration from the cliffs and caves on the coastline near Porthcurno on the Penwith peninsula. Other works in the series include Curved Form (Bryher) (1961), (1961-63) and (1964).
