Mid Century Modern Abstracted Figurative Bust in Black Marble

Circa 1970

About

This impressive sculpture represents the marriage of tribal art with western techniques and materials. Realized in the style of Constantin Brancusi, this figurative bust presents a stylized face chiseled into black marble. The female visage appears with abstracted features, seemingly in a state of repose. The block of marble surrounding her head has been left unfinished offering tones chalky tones of rust and slate. This raw marble, representing her hair, offers both a tonal and textural contrast to the impeccably finished and lustrous black marble. This is a truly compelling object, full of vitality, that would be a dynamic addition to practically any style of decor from classic Mid Century Modern to contemporary. Signed "LJAK" on the reverse. Excellent condition. American, Circa 1970 Dimensions: 17"H X 11.5"D X 9.5"W
