What an amazing find for the collector. There is not much we can tell you about this fantastic head. It sat on the mantel of the FO's residence in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia for at lest 40 years before it was moved to the Bethany Beach, Delaware Summer House in 1978.
This information provided to us by the FO who is now 93 years old. It was one of her husbands favorite "Treasures". It's currently sitting on our mantle and has garnered more conversation than the original Keith Haring it sits below. The FO's both Archeologists with a strong affiliation with the University of Pennsylvania Library and Fine Arts Programs.The wife is a retired Librarian from the University of Pennsylvania. We have searched the internet and have been unable to locate anything remotely close to this fantastic object currently being offered for sale. The base and the head together weigh almost 8.00 lbs. The head is held onto the base with a steel? We have not removed the head from the base.
