"Art Deco Bronze Statue - Jeune femme au livre - signed Chiparus"
Jeune femme au livre (Young Woman with a Book) is a French Art Deco sculpture that was designed by Demétre Haralamb Chiparus. The expertly sculpted depiction of a woman is characterised by a detailed surface design in which - from a structural point of view - individual materials were recreated in quite a life-like manner. The bronze statue was painted and sealed by hand. It is placed on a light base that rounds off the motif. Additionally, there is another notable detail when it comes to this historical motif. The young woman is not entirely made of bronze. Due to the fact that it is a replica of a chryselephantine bronze statue, another processed material becomes apparent in the area of the face and hands. However, it is not ivory, as was the case at the turn of the last century. The head and hands of the beautiful young woman are made of resin that is made to look like ivory. Additionally, the statue bears the signature of the artist.

Chryselephantine statues have a long tradition. In ancient times, sculptures of this type were particularly sought-after. In the classical sense, the term chryselephantine means the sculptural combination of the precious metal gold and ivory. In contemporary art, this composition does vary. In French Art Deco, for example, the gold was replaced by bronze. Nowadays, the ivory is foregone due to reasons concerning animal welfare. Instead, artists use resin as an alternative material.
