An Art Deco Statuary Marble Figure of Cleopatra.

The half-lifesize standing figure posed with her right foot raised and looking to dexta, in front of a recumbent sphinx raised on a stepped entablature. On a Siena marble pedestal carved with panelled front.  
 
Italian, Early 20th Century.

Intertwining history and legend, the story of Cleopatra (68-30 B.C.) has inspired artists for centuries. The present depiction dates to a period of Egyptomania inspired by Howard Carter's discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. Egyptian motifs in turn informed dress and high fashion during the Roaring Twenties and in the decorative arts, became an integral part of the language of Art Deco.

Height of Figure :   120 cm   47 inches.
Total Height :          161 cm   63 inches.
