Description
Sculpture (1) - Djati wood - Grote en unieke vrouwenfiguur met twee dolfijnen - Bali, Indonesia
2nd half 20th century - Good condition, used with some signs of wear

The statue is unique: there is only 1 copy of it. It was carved in Bali circa 1970 by order of a Frenchman. He had taken a picture of a French statue along. The woodcarver carved the statue in Djati wood and added two dolphins. However, the statue was never retrieved. Twenty years later, the artist sold the statue to the owner of a large gallery, who put it in his office. In 1995 I saw it there. Weight: almost 8 kg. Will be shipped by registered mail. Pick up is also possible.
