Pair of Carved Limestone Poodles from Italy

On Hold
US$6,900per set

About

A must have for any dog lover, this pair of limestone poodles were hand-carved in Italy. The detail is quite amazing, indicating that the mason who carved these dogs is highly skilled. The standard-sized poodles are carved from one block of limestone, and feature a rectangular plinth with canted corners. The edges have been etched with a diagonal fluting pattern on all four sides and each corner. The sitting dogs are depicted with rolls of long, curly fur that cover most of their body, except for the back of the head and along the spine (possibly known as a “Dutch clip”). The lack of fur in these spots allowed the artist to showcase more of their talent, carving sections of a collar and visible spinal bones. Also notice how the fur hangs from the snout, allowing faint whiskers to be sculpted into the stone. This pair of Italian carved limestone poodles would make excellent additions to a garden or outdoor setting. They would be excellent conversation pieces if they were flanking a door or entryway. *Pedestals and paving stones underneath the dogs are not included. Please contact us for more info.
