Interested in who could have made this.

My grandfather bought this carving (Medusa?) in NYC sometime in the 40's or 50's. He passed away several years ago and now I have it. I am very curious about who could have made it and when. I think it may have been used to make a plaster mold since there seems to be some kind of plaster residue on it.



Looking forward to hearing what your take is on this.

Thank
Jason

I have no clue. But that is definitely something. Whoever made it probably doesn't want recognition for his work or something. It's a great piece though, you should hold on to it.

It reminds me of how the Symbolists portrayed Orpheus.
