an Ottawa private collection


This superb small sculpture has not yet been attributed, but its own attributes are clear: elegance, naturalism, balance and poise, and beautiful finish. It is one of the loveliest examples of this motif that we can recall. We do hope that one day we will be able to give credit where credit is due.
