"Antique ivory sculpted in Africa during the late 19th century.  It is a tribal girl in traditional design."  'I discovered in an 'antique' shop in Java.  The entire sculpture was crude in effect and apart from the face, it needed some help from my studio.  "Leaving the girl's face intact is all I left from the original piece.  I then designed all of the characters to suit the composition to my liking.  It now resides in a private museum, with signatures of  two artists."
