Description

A young woman, classically draped (with a bit of strategic undraping), strides gracefully with a duck in one hand. No known symbolism invests this work; it’s just pleasant to look at. This is an early sculpture by Paul Manship, best known for his Prometheus in New York’s Rockefeller Center.
