Phryne by Michel Coste H: 41.5 cm 375 Ex. Size: H 16 1/3"
H : 41,5 cm - 16 1/3. Michel Coste has a uniquely original artistic approach: He sculpts directly in stone drawn from quickwater. His work is sensual and tactile, enigmatic and secret. he also has a passion for writing. With Daum, Michel Coste discovered the luminosity and transparency he was looking for in pāte-de-crystal. Phryne The Hetaera was the most famous courtesan of her day. Phryne's beauty was such that every important and rich man lined up to be with her. She was particularly...ummm...friendly with Praxiteles, the greatest sculptor of ancient times. He used her as the model for his most famous work, the Aphrodite of Knidus; that statue made Phryne the gold standard for female beauty for ages to come.
