This is a very rare antique late 18th century hand carved figural Italian marble cut by Leopoldo Vanelli. It is signed on the front of the circular base " Giacomo di Leopoldo Vanelli Scultore Carrara".It depicts a beautiful female figure wrapped in a flowing tapestry and crowned with an ornate floral headpiece. She stands on a thick circular base which has a sprouting tree stub. It is cut with an abundance of very intricate detailing and is extremely high quality. The tree is very lifelike and equally as detailed as the figure.
The whole sculpture is cut from one solid piece of Italian white marble and has a sheen finish from age. It measures 34 1/2 inches tall by 16 inches wide. It is in exquisite shape and very heavy. There is a very small chip on one of the headpiece flowers, refer to last picture. Thank you for visiting "Dusty Treasures " and please feel free to browse through.
