Artist and Author,, Christine Palamidessi’s work is inspired by Mediterranean history and geography. Her preferred material is paper, which she folds, paints and molds. Hardening agents are applied to the sculptures. It is a technique, called cartapesta, that she learned and continues to study in Lecce, Italy.
Contemporary Girl`s Nude Torso sculpture, Indoor Papier Mache Breasts Torso Chest of a mermaid sculpture statue for Inside Interior display for sale by The American Sculptress Christine Palamidessi who writes about this Unique.... "Aphrodite is a fish woman, a mermaid embodying male and female shapes. The colourful scene inside the sculpture harkens back to Eve, the Biblical temptress. Adam’s face is seen near the tail looking towards Eve, wondering if she still loves him. The story reflects Aphrodite’s priority to pleasure over duty. Sculpture is mounted on a revolving base.
Christine Palamidessi writes...A beautiful 28 year-old Brazilian woman modeled for this signature Aphrodite sculpture. She became my muse, modeling for more than one sculpture and When Heaven tears away from Earth, that is Aphrodite’s moment. The Water parts and she rises up from the sea. Note: the sculpture is displayed on a stem which joins a revolving base, so you can place it on a shelf or corner table and turn the sculpture. I also have a non-revolving base; if that display mode interests you, please contact me.
