Replica of the famous sculptures done by Modigliani, this wonderful sculptural portrait head is characteristic of his style of artwork.
When a young man, Modigliani went to the marble-quarries in Carrara to learn the skills of sculpting. Later in life, he became attracted to the traditional sculptures of Africa and Oceania : instantly recognizable in this head carved from stone. This is a sanctuary portrait, its shape determined by the perfect vertical lines. It has a meditative and sacred appearance and in this respect it has links with Modigliani's Hebrew background.
Makes a perfect gift for those who love Amedeo Modigliani's artistry.
