Professor Rugeer Famu Lapita statue, This is one of the crushed marble hand carved statues that you see on the roadshow. An extensive process to make & has the look & feel of solid marble, but not the expense. This one shows a young woman holding a mare & her colt with flowers at their feet. I don't know the age of this, but would guess the 1960 era. Very well made & a great design. Aprox 9 x 9 1/2", bottom edge is rough, but I believe they are all this way due to to process. No chips et that I could find, I question whether the tail is a little shorter than it should be, but it doesn't appear to be chipped et. There is one thing that I don't like about it, one of the nostrils on the girls nose was carved a little deep & it looks like she has a flat nose, If this were mine, I would take a piece of sand paper to it & give it a little less depth. It is a great statue & definitely a work of art.
