This is a rare and exceptional find. It is a magnificent carved figurine of a nude female figure draped in a garland and accented with a floral and leaf design. This is the finest example of the Circa 1890 Art Nouveau Era. The detail of the carving is intricate and well executed. The female figure epitomizes the naturalistic forms of this period. She is balancing on a rock with one leg and the other leg is raised behind her. Her left arm is held up behind her head and the other is raised in the air creating a very elegant appearance. The figure measures 11 1/2 inches at the tallest part of the upraised arm and 16 1/4 inches tall on the original ebony base. This piece is in excellent condition showing only a few minor age lines indicative of an antique carving, please refer to photos. The entire carving flows creating a very dramatic effect and is a beautiful example of the Art Nouveau Era.
