General Notes

Seems to be almost gilded (with gold), but I believe is just the lustrous finish of the bronze by the artist.

Description

Full figure female nude pulling an arrow thru a bow and balancing on one foot. A presentation of an ideal female form.

Emotional Sum or Sense-of-life

Serenity in action. But not a strong world view in any case, quite placid.
