Description

Subject Matter:

Primitivist abstraction and surrealistic caricature of the figure of a girl carrying loaves of French bread.

Physical Description:

Highly abstracted figure with oval body, short straight legs, and a large mushroom shaped head with a crude, wide-mouthed face. Between the body and head are two horizontal bars that are slightly longer than the width of the head. The sculpture is quite flat, and the bronze has a molten look.
