This is a large and adorable grouping of 3 naked boys (discretely covered) in the act of lifting and carrying two wicker baskets strewn with flowers.
Stand back just a couple of feet and it will bring you a ton of enjoyment! Look closely besides admiring the masterful sculpting involved you will see a bunch of flowers missing (all the flowers that are there are intact). The only missing flower that is of real concern is probably the one that was on the center boy's inner knee. Several are off on the ground and one on the corner of the left basket.
The two boys on the left had lost there heads and obviously someone found them and reattached them!! Because of the angle of their heads it really is not noticeable. In fact I did not see the reattachment evidence when examining at the auction preview locally! I discovered it just a little while ago when photographing it for this listing. The next to the last photo has a number of black stars that indicate the areas that have the losses and the head repairs. I thought so highly of this piece in spite of the losses that I had to purchase it so that I could offer it to you.
The statue measures 10 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 7 5/8".
Priced accordingly based on the condition.
