Figure of a Woman

Catalogue Description:
Solid-cast bronze figure of a woman standing, with feet closed, on a support in form of a colonnette with twisted shaft, holding a clapper in each hand with raised arms; on her head a fish, probably a dolphin, with forked tail. Her long wig ends in uncurled corkscrew locks; she has bracelets and armlets and, round her neck, a cord which supports a shapeless pendant between her breasts. Condition: Excellent.
