Henri Godet Enameled Bronze "Femme Fleur" Sculpture
This "Femme Fleur" sculpture by Henri Godet depicts the patinated bronze head and neck of a young woman with flowing hair and serene expression growing out of an enameled red and yellow lily flower, the petals of which also double as a charming crown for the young lady. The French Art Nouveau sculpture rests on a red marble base, with the flower perched on a green enameled leaf decorated with a gilt bronze flower.
