Original and presumably unique terracotta sculpture by Claudine Paluzzi (aka Claudine Paluzzi-Kelsey, American, Indianapolis, born 1931). This work is signed on the base "C. Paluzzi" and is in excellent condition. Approximately 10" high. The terracotta is covered with a painted patina in brown and extremely well finished. Claudine Paluzzi-Kelsey is a well listed, exhibited, and collected sculptor, painter, graphic artist, and educator. Her terracotta sculptures (she appears to have favored that medium) appear on occasion on the market.
