Description
Model, Artist mannequin - articulated lay figure - Wood - Late 19th century
France

A beautiful artist lay figure or mannequin in pinewood with a fine honey color patina, carved with a great eye for detail, such as the tiny finger and tow nails and the facial expression.

All joints are made of wood and held together by tiny wooden pegs, which are visible on the side and back. This allows the figure to be placed in a large variety of different poses, only a few of which are shown in my pictures.

France. Late 19th century.

Presented on a custom-made stand which can be easily removed if needed.
