La Petite Fille

Trapezoidal crate plank, with a burnt-in inscription on the reverse: "Omrelles Aubonmarche Paris Paral..." -- the inscription is continued on the block titled La Famille. Contours and reduced areas were cut with a knife. Reduction areas on the girl's head and lower figure area show marks left by iron nails. Wood is warped along the annual rings of tree-growth, with the carved area on the inside of the warp. A wide cut runs obliquely down the cut from the right side, across the legs.
