Description

  • Lobi
  • Pendentif en bronze
  • 11 cm
  • 4 1/3 in
A la puissance de la pose - accentuée par le détail des articulations - répond l'intensité de l'expression : la face tout en tensions s'achevant dans la courbe relevée de la bouche, les traits asymétriques. La dynamique est accentuée par l'anneau de suspension s'étirant à la perpendiculaire. Superbe patine d'usage, brune et brillante sur les parties saillantes, grumeleuse dans les creux.
