Against the background of the world, schematic images of trees and lakes, with castles on the shore, Aphrodite’s face pops up – the head of a lost sculpture of Praxitor – in a stone triangle split into two halves. It intersects with two cracks, with it on the triangle depicted two bottles of perfume and uneven ball. From one of the cracks protrudes teaky wing. A color lithograph, signed and dated in the plate, 23 May 1961. This is a reproduction from the original oil on canvas painting From a New Jersey estate. Attached to a mat. Areas of foxing / staining, especially apparent at the lower margin.
