An incredible pair of winged Harpy sculpture corbels originally from a 17th Century Belgian Castle.
In Belgian Blue Stone with traces of original gesso and paint, these mythical creatures retain such crisp features and intricate carving.
In Greek mythology and Roman mythology, a harpy is a half-human and half-bird personification of storm winds. They feature in Homeric poems.
Depicted here with an erect head, breasts of a young woman and pearls as ornaments are naturalistic and bewitching.
