This graceful Statue is executed in Bronze, and represents a Nymph, the Goddess of Flowers, wearing a Wreath or Garland of Flowers on her head and arm. [P. 18; engraving on p. 18 depicts a female figure attired in classical garb, in a frontal pose with her head in profile. Her right leg is raised and crossed in front of the left, while the position of the hands suggest the motions of a classical dance. A large garland of flowers encircles one wrist.]
