An important bronze sculpture of Irene Diggs (1906-1996) ; She was an Anthropologist; Cross cultural studies, race and race relations was an integral part of her studies; She attended several Universities including Monmouth College, University of Minnesota whee she earned her BA degree, Atlanta University where she earned a graduate degree in Anthropology; at that time she also became an assistant & collaborator for eight years to William DuBois writings including "Black Folks", "The Encyclopedia of the Negro"; She was the founder of the very influential journal "Phylon- a Review of Race & Culture; "...she made many important contributions during her life; Her accomplishments as a black woman was a foundation for others to follow;

This bronze sculpture was done by Tina Dompe of Rome Italy; her works were sculptures and drawings; she had several exhibitions at the San Sebastianello Gallery in Rome; I believe this sculpture was part of one of her exhibitions as it has a number at the front bottom right and a label on the back;

The sculpture is in excellent condition; the marble tile backing has cracking but still very sturdy; the sculpture is attached to the marble by 2 screws which makes it possible to remove and replace with a new tile; the sculpture measures 4" high, 2 1/4"wide, 1 1/2" thick; the marble tile measures 6 1/2" X 4", 7/8"thick;

This sculpture is a wonderful conversation piece , a great addition to your collection;
