Royal Copenhagen Zodiac Figurine Virgo / White Female:
ROYAL COPENHAGEN Zodiac Figurine VIRGO
August 23 – September 22 ** (The Virgin)
Seen from the Earth, the Sun takes a whole year to travel full circle through the celestial sphere. On its journey, it passes through a narrow belt comprised of stellar constellations. Royal Copenhagen’s Zodiac figurines represent these constellations, known as ‘The Circle of Life’. ROYAL COPENHAGEN figurine of VIRGO from the ZODIAC series by Christel Marott. This ZODIAC series is based on sculptures created by Christel Marott in the mid-1980s, supremely capturing the special characteristics of the astrological signs of the Zodiac. Each sculpture reflects Christel's inimitable andsensual style, cunningly combining innocence and decadence.
**The dates of each sign vary slightly from year to year.
Christel Marott (1919-1992) was only seventeen when she made her debut as an illustrator of weekly magazines, and throughout her life she continued to draw illustrations for weeklies and fashion magazines. She signed her work Christel, and it became synonymous with alluring girls with long legs and a characteristic, vibrant sensuality. Christel's talent diversified; her designs for fashion, shoes, and theater decorations show the scope of her abilities. She moved to Rome in 1973, where she developed her interest in the art of sculpture. She studied at the academy of art in Rome, and went on to create a series of unique sculptures in ceramics. These sculptures have a beautiful, clear and almost economical style that is underlined by the bisque porcelain without either glaze or painted decoration. Beautifully detailed in the finest Royal Copenhagen tradition. Sensual rather than erotic, both modern and classic, this would be an elegant addition to almost any décor.
