Philolaos was an important 20th century sculptor. He was born and trained in Greece, but did most of his work in France, where he won awards, and was critically acclaimed tor his work, which included furniture as well as sculptures, and his pieces are highly sought after.
This striking jewel of a sculpture, in steel, is both powerful and whimsical. The top can be flipped up to expose a polished circle - a mirror.
From the Primavera Gallery collection of fine 20th century sculpture and objects.
