During an episode of curiosity, I started researching the origin of one of my bronze sculptures. The lady dressed in turn of the century clothing is carrying a backpack.
Is she getting ready for golfing, as the sticker on the bottom implies (Lady Golfer); or is this actually (Lady Hiker)?
“Sometimes I envision she is standing on top of a high mountain overlooking a green valley with a stream that runs through the middle. And, yet on another day I envision she is ready for a game of golf on the turf.”
After checking information about the manufacturer and trying to decipher the inscription on the base, I believe it’s a sculpture by Alexsander Danel from what research I could find on this link showing a similar statue. So, that ends this story and searching for answers behind this decorative piece that’s happy to sit on top of one of my bookcases.
