Dimensions: H (with stand) 29cm : H (sculpture) 24cm ; W 21,5cm ; thickness 6.5cm.
Condition: A fragment of a larger piece whose back has been flattened in modern times, probably because there was a larger chunk of marble on the back. The sculpture has retained its beautiful old patina on the front and shows a nice deep relief.
