This is a beautifully expressed antique carved marble sculpture that captures a young peasant girl standing beside a wall of ruins, resting from her duties with a large amphora against her hip. Great attention has been shown to her clothing, which flows naturally as she stands barefooted on the rocky path. Along the back edge of the rocky structure is a crisp signature of "Rigi Freres, Florence", likely the firm that sculpted the work for the original artist - their signature is also situated verso above this on the upper edge of the rock, but is somewhat illegible. It is a large and striking marble sculpture, likely from the last quarter of the 19th century.

Measurements: 29 3/8" H x 11" W x 9 1/2" D

Condition Report: Discoloration to the stone throughout. Restoration to the edge of the base: modern material used to fill a chip loss, then painted to match the marble. Minor chips and scuffs to surfaces.
