This gorgeous marble statue depicts a washer woman who is ready to scrub the floor or do the laundry. She holds a pumice stone in her right hand as she prepares to do her work. The woman is in a plain dress. Her shoes and head scarf are more decorative, with both having flowers and the former being high heels. She is bent over with left elbow on her waist as she puts one foot up on the curb. She is smiling as if she is looking up from her work to greet you. On the left back side of the woman appears a blemish, which in no way detracts from the beauty of the piece and which is reflected in the price as is. Overall, this is a lovely piece that mixes an elegant art form with common everyday activities.
H: 16 1/2 in.
