This piece depicts a biomorphic and naturalistic abstraction, reminiscent of Henry Moore and Jean Arp. This piece approximately dates to the late 1960's.

Engraved: "Ellis W" on the lower edge of the verso. Approximately 12 1/4 inches tall x 16 inches wide x 8 inches deep. Good condition for age, with a few mild scratches to the surface of the sculpture please see photos.Original sculptures by Ellis Watkins are exceedingly rare, and there have only been two other examples ever offered for sale since the creation of the Internet.
