MID CENTURY MODERN NUDE FEMALE OBSIDIAN SCULPTURE! (DIMENSIONS: Height: 16" Width: 8" Weight: 22 pounds) In The Manner Of Alexander Archipenko. In the mid century period, the arts flourished. Interior sculptures joined paintings as the most fashionable decorative items.Modern sculpture was a way to tell your guests you were civilized and appreciated the very latest in culture! But this piece is a masterpiece made from Black Obsidian one of the rarest (and heaviest) materials for sculpture. Obsidian is a volcanic glass that is formed when volcanic material is quickly cooled. Obsidian can be sharper than any metal and the largest mass of it exists in the volcanic regions of Mexico. Mining obsidian is tough, working with it is difficult. Obsidian sculptures are the Holy Grail of sculpture materials because they shine unlike anything else and can be sculpted in ways other materials can't. This rare work is a mesmerizing angular yet curvaceous female nude with incredible lines & proportions! Here is one of those coveted modern sculptures a contemporary modernist would sell their soul for! This work transforms the female form into an aesthetic grouping of curves, lines and shapes - a superb example of sculptural cubism! This is the finest Obsidian sculpture we have ever seen!
Truly a dynamic and magnificent work of art and a once in a lifetime opportunity for the discerning collector. Natural veins & streaks present in the obsidian which complement the lines! An absolutely wonderful art addition to your NY Penthouse, Palm Springs Atomic Ranch or UK summer home!
