Ricardo Santamaria

Carved Wood Sculpture

France, c. 1970



Carved wood, steel base.

Height: 77.5" Diameter: 6"

A rough patchwork of carved details covers most of this striking sculpture by Ricardo Santamaria, but its top, polished into a sphere, is as refined a form as might be found at the top of a banister. In short, with this piece, executed in the 1970s, the artist creates a blended language all his own, using both an ancient gnomic forms as well as those more traditional to the decorative arts of France.
