incised signature and Firenze on base
ht. 35.5 in.
Pugi operated a studio in Florence, Italy, along with his sons. This sculpture may have been executed when the sons were in operation on their own.
Provenance: Property descended in the family of Charles Gerald Conn, Elkhart, IN
The sculpture has some stains and dents on its surface, and some dirt located in carved areas. The most notable condition issues is repair at the end of the laurel branch right at the figure's left hand. There is glue residue and the spot where it broke is still visible.
