Asian Maiden Sculpture by Amiloare Santini
Sculptor Santini (1910-1975) is probably best known for his use of carrara marble to create unique and classical sculptures such as Danaide, Birth of Venus, Dance of Bolero and Venus Italica. He also formulated a unique medium of carrara powder, alabaster powder and resin for casting his classics. The Santini Workshop is well known and has flooded the market with his creations. . . and the creations of others.
However, before he died, he created some unique pieces that are rarely seen. I have had a few of his Asian works and they all have a pleasant golden tone and tons of detail. Over the last 20 years I have only seen one figure that has an Asian theme.
This is one such piece. Lots of character and in great condition.
