Description

well carved in the round, the young figure in a dynamic posture, merrily skipping along, one foot sweeping aside a small dog scurrying from beneath the robes, the garment swaying in ribbon-like folds in response to the S-curved movement of the body, the left arm bent at the elbow holding a beribboned ring by the shoulder, the right arm lowered grasping a small bird in the hand, the boy with a cheerful expression on the face, the hair bundled into two knots, a double-gourd canteen slung over the shoulder, the details all crisply carved and polished to a lustrous sheen, the stone an icy white color with scattered pale brown patches, wood stand (2)
