Description
This very evocative and serene portrait of a lady is carved most delicately from white limestone. Her hair is cleanly arranged and parted in the middle. Her face and bust are delicately and humbly covered with a shawl or headed dress. She has a simple pose yet communicates an austere and somewhat pensive state to us. Her gaze takes us back with her to a time when contemplation was with greater depth and meaning. Yet, there is kindness in her gently smiling lips. A “Mona-Lisa” smile that lets us know she is an old soul with great understanding of the meaning of life. One cannot help but gaze back at her, entranced by the profundity of her expression. - (P.4360)
