Mid-Century Brutalist Kinetic Butterfly Geode Sculpture

$685

About

A signed Brutalist mixed metal sculpture from the mid-20th century, delicate miniature size, having finely detailed sculptural cut metal butterfly, flying above abstract flower and foliate form twisted scroll ribbon gilt brass strips, attached to a beautiful smooth orange and brown geode, rising on tripod base. Signed in pencil to reverse geode. Kinetic, a small movement causes the butterfly to "flutter" appearing to fly, as it elegantly reflects light. Dimensions: 12" H, 8” W, 7.5” D.
