Polished Brass "Maya" TOTEM by Robert Zeidman, 1980s

$3,600Asking Price

About

Impressive TOTEM sculpture by renowned artist Robert Zeidman (1915-1996) in cut and polished solid brass. A unique figurative example of Zeidman's mostly abstract totemic metal sculpture; this piece draws inspiration from as it's title suggests the imagery and visual motifs of the Mayan deities in this case, most likely the sun god Kinich Ahau. With pinned brass hinges joining both matching halves, this sculpture can be displayed as a TOTEM (as seen here); or, as divider/screen spanning 42" in width. Some minor oxidation to brass in small areas, very good condition overall wonderful warmth in tone and texture of brass.
