Studio Vase by Stig Lindberg

About

The centaur was Stig Lindberg's favorite mythological figure, one he returned to in his work repeatedly. The surface of this unique studio vase, which was made in 1961, is decorated with a sculptural relief of a highly-stylized centaur holding a staff above its head. It may be that the centaur appealed to Stig Lindberg because of its Mediterranean origin. Stig Lindberg loved the culture of southern Europe, travelling there often, and even establishing a studio in Italy, where he spent his final years. Signed by the artist: "Stig L.".
