This standing female possesses a commanding presence and bears the mark of her aristocratic, even royal heritage. Her legs which are firmly set apart with hands on her hips displays her confidence, while her elaborate garments and jewelry tell us she is a woman of some distinction. It is exactly this quality, which has inspired and awed artists such as Henry Moore and Picasso, who emulated similar lines in their work. This beautiful piece would make anyone feel part of the privileged class this lovely lady once belonged to. - (PF.2674)
