Handcrafted Abstract Sculpture of Female Torso by Unknown Artist, 1950s
A highly decorative, handcrafted 40cm earthenware sculpture. The artist has created a very sensual shape of a young woman with a long, giraffe-like neck which in some cultures is a sign of ultimate beauty and female elegance. She has one arm extended above her head creating the illusion of a vase or jug, but there is no opening at the top. It does invite the onlooker to touch and handle the piece, making it very tactile. The piece is decorated with a salt glaze in light turquoise. Representational or semi abstract in design, influenced by early and mid-20th century contemporaries like Picasso, Cocteau and Chagall.
