Description
Bas-relief representing a choir of cherubs - gypsum or scagliola - First half 20th century
Italy

Antique 20th century bas-relief sculpture. depicting a choir of singing and playing cherubs. Beautiful and one of a kind item. It seems made of gypsum dust or plaster. Since I am not a connoisseur, I am not able to give correct information about the material.
I am sure this has been a model for the same subject in bronze or other material, which is now probably part of some important building/villa or museum. This bas-relief or picture enchants for its evocative beauty. Suitable everywhere, a one of a kind item. Measurements: 70 x 12 x 5 cm The bas-relief or sculpture is sold as is, with small imperfections and the expected wear and tear. To check the artwork’s condition, please loook at the photos. Tracked shipping and professional packaging.
