Bronze sculpture details
The African woman in her tribal costume looks at the observer with a proud and cool air. At peace and aware of her strength. The strength and vigour of a woman and mother in the family and in the community.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Monique Altig was born in Sion, Switzerland. She did not become a sculptor until rather late in life ‑ her first works in clay were only made in the early 90s. Since then, however, she has created many objects, although they are impossible to classify as belonging to specific movements or styles.
