Chinese Ivory Statuette of a Naked Woman Holding a Fish


Lovely and quite unusual ivory statuette, made in China around the 1920s-1930s. Its simplistic, yet expertly-executed carving style is characteristic of ivory carvings made during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. This carving depicts a naked young woman, holding a fish with one hand and putting the index finger of her other hand in the fish's mouth. She has a bemused, or perhaps even mischievous look on her face. This rather strange image is an intriguing one and you can't help but wonder what she is thinking when you look at it. She is in excellent condition and stands on a rosewood base.
