Description
Though hardly naturalistic in it’s rendering, this little llama possesses a delightful vitality. The quick, light hand of the artist, perhaps a child apprenticed to a master, is everywhere in evidence. When we ourselves handle such apiece, we are placed directly in touch with another creative life, long forgotten save for such small tokens. - (K.079)
