Provenance:Private collection, Paris, France
Exceptional and elegant wisely sculpted and golden greyhound. Excellent example of the art Decò at the beginning of the century in France.
His pose is typical of the animals waiting and the greyhound in particular expresses a certain elegance and refinement, expressly performed in this sculpture in particular in the body of the animal with bones in relief.
The snout instead expresses pride and composure with the ears downwards as a sign of listening, devotion and above all loyalty to their owners.
