Description
There is a naive yet energetic quality to the carving of this piece that captures our imaginations. Is this boldly naked woman with the wide stare a goddess like Venus, or some more secular beauty? She strides forward as if hers is the natural state of being. In the forceful carving and her energetic movement we feel the pulse of ancient life not so very different in essential ways from our own. - (P.0141)
