Beautiful stone sculpture of a young woman, made in the stylized style of the 1920's.

The influence of architecture in the work of Callie is very visible in this piece, the long and narrow form he used, it's like he wants to honour the woman by putting her on a high pedestal.

The sculpture is underneath signed and dated with "Callie, 1928".
