Antique 004

Napoleon style mantel, circa 1800. Beautifully carved legs. The theme then was "The return from Egypt".The mantel features ornaments borrowed from ancient Rome and Egypt such as the spectacular female bust carved on both legs. This unique sculpture depicts a woman with a folded tunica around the waist and curly hair piled high around the face as it was typical in Ancient Rome. The bust sits upon a canted and stepped base whose shape is reminiscent of the knotted and plaited false beard worn by Pharaoh in Ancient Egypt. The execution of this masterpiece will have special appeal for the connoisseur.
