Inspired by the legacy of the most innovative artist of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso, this Murano Glass Face of an African Woman is hand-crafted in one of the most prominent glass factories on Murano island. This Murano Glass sculpture features a woman's face with a unique pattern of black and white, rich features like expressive eyes, and sensual lips, lovely earrings and necklace, and gorgeous hair. The Woman's Head sculpture reflects key modern art trends of the 20th century and Picasso's nonconformist approach to art. By putting three-dimensional objects onto flat surface Picasso achieved a sharp focus on the details, which are key to the perception of art. Murano Glass Picasso inspired busts and faces are some of the most sought-after objects of Murano Glass, they can be found in Venice only in a few selected galleries, and are rarely seen outside of Murano and Venice. This Head Of An African Woman statue makes a perfect gift for anyone who likes modern art, appreciates Picasso and his style, and values handmade, one-of-a-kind Murano Glass creations.

Making of Murano Glass Picasso heads, faces, hands, and other sculptures is a long and meticulous process, which includes multiple steps. First, the base of the head is crafted from transparent or colored glass using a special bronze mold. Once the base of the head cools off, the glass-master adds features to it in a quick, precise manner, one by one, repeatedly re-heating the head in the furnace to ensure the correct state of the glass for glass-making. In the end, the master adds the hair by applying a layer of hot glass mass over the head and using basic instruments to shape it up and create unique hairstyles. The end result is a stunning modern art sculpture in the surrealist and cubist style of Pablo Picasso, which makes a fine gift and a perfect accent for any contemporary or mid-century interior design.
