Carlos Aguirre (Mexico, 20th Century)

Carlos Aguirre (1948- ) Mexican; "Maya", 1984. A unique cast life size bronze sculpture.

A life-size, original and unique cast sculpture of a woman by listed Mexican artist Carlos Aguirre; signed, dated, and titled "Maya-1". This commanding piece was acquired from an important Lillian Rice designed estate, located in Southern California, where she was found perched outside the house and gazing across sweeping vistas from the hilltop property.

What is fascinating about this work is she clasps her face in an extremely expressive gesture, yet her face remains stoic and unmoved thus veiling all emotion. Did she receive devastating news or just learn that she's won the lottery? Aguirre cleverly leaves it to the viewer's imagination to interpret the story behind this enigmatic beauty.

Another interesting note is the sculpture makes an incredibly versatile design element that would compliment a variety of decors. It fits right at home in a traditional hacienda or other Spanish Revival house, or place her in an ultra modern setting where she would provide a wonderful accent. I, personally, would love to see her in an Art Deco environment where I think she would absolutely shine.

Commentary

"Very good condition with beautiful, naturally weathered, verdigris patination. A few areas with "white" spots that can be removed if desired."
