Description
This striking white sculpture created out of earthenware shows the ingenuity and creativity involved in producing a work such as this. The choice of color that the artist chose allows the piece to become highly visible, but the selection of decorations is particularly beautiful, mixing the popular geometric design with highly fluid and elegant free-form design. The hands on the stomach accentuate a rounded form and a basic understanding of anatomy. The face is also very visible with the eyes and mouth both surrounded by red pigment. The hair is parted down the middle, which seems to be a popular design in the period of art. The genitalia is discreetly hidden behind a cloth, showing care about the importance of the meaning of the work. The back is also decorated with a beautiful design, creating an entire work of art, without forgetting any aspect of the piece. In this respect, the art created has become timeless. - (PF.4015)
