1930s French Plaster Wall Relief

$3,195

About

A relief sculpture made of plaster, produced in France circa 1930. A dreamlike scene of waddling toddlers out in the woods, playing unsupervised: doing everything from sleeping in the brush to making fire. The purity of the moment captured in white plaster elevates their mischief into a mythical moment.
