Exceptional is the best way to describe this superb, very substantial piece.
Certain to be the centrepiece of any collection or fine interior, this beautifully carved 74cm sphinx is just breathtaking.
Likely an English folk art piece, this superbly naive sphinx is late 18th, early 19th century.
With remnants of polychrome paint over gesso, the patina on this piece is outstanding.
Captivatingly rendered, this is an exceptionally rare, mystical and mythical, one-off masterpiece.
There will not be another.
