And she is holding a symbolic thing in her hand too Tom
Tom Wilson: And I've no idea what it is, Chris!
Sweden has many statues, I like that country a lot, so mellow
Tom Wilson: Indeed it does, Chantal - and Borås is virtually sculpture capital with its biennial sculpture festival and all the public art around the streets.
Looks very Art Deco to me Tom....but what do I know?
Tom Wilson: You could be right, Bill - since I know just about as much as you do smile
A very Nordic looking Venus Tom. 1930s perhaps? I love the whisps of cloud.
Tom Wilson: I thought so myself, Chad - yest, erected 1931
Nicely captured, Tom, she looks a bit lost.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank - just emerged from the waves and not knowing where she is smile
I love the clam shell and the finish on the statue.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's a handsome piece, I think.
Nicely presented too.
Rather a beautiful carving isn't it.
