DescriptionThese three small works are identical, except for the color at the base of each piece. Each one has a shiny, polished gold female head with a matte finished base shaped like the top of a bowling pin (one in white, one in blue, and one in black). The heads are stylized, with faint features carved in relief and slicked back hair.
