Natural or White Sculpture
Although the form and lines appear simple, it takes real talent and artistry to create them, especially out of stone. Mr. Romani used the lines in the stone to enhance this beautiful figure. And her abstract shape suggests different activities that women engage in. I was proud to give it to my daughter as a gift.
I purchased this as a gift and was thinking of staining it in a batik print. But the piece is too beautiful to change. The carving is lovely, including the belly and underside of the tail. The crocodile wood is something like maple and the finish is like satin. I didn?t expect so much. The gift wrapping is also a special touch that we are keeping.
This elephant arrived yesterday and is even more amazing in real life. Incredible craftsmanship. I love it. Thank you Gulam Rasool.
