This is a gorgeous antique carved alabaster nude sculpture, depicting a lovely young female emerging from a rock. Her breasts are exposed and her hair is flowing around her, becoming part of the rock. The sculpture measures 11 1/2" tall and 10 1/2" across and about 4 1/2" deep. It weighs over 17 pounds. There is a signature on the back of the rock, which looks to read "Scieur Matare".. but it is hard to decipher. The underside has a bronze coin embedded into the alabaster, perhaps a retailers mark, which reads "S&Co". The sculpture is in excellent condition. There is a tiny nick on the young lady's nose, and a small nick on her hair... I tried to show this in the photographs. You will be extremely pleased. This is from my personal collection.
