Terracotta Sculpture Daphnis et Chloe by Carpeaux

I have been toying with the idea to produce some work in Terracotta and Parian ware and this delightful work by Jean Baptiste Carpeaux has finally convinced me to get started as soon as my large commission is finished!

This is a late work by Carpeaux dated 1875 and is a study inspired from a novel by Longus.

Not that I don't like this piece (2 standing figures in terracotta - quite a challenge) -- but it makes me long for Clodion -- whose figures seem a bit more comfortable about being naked.
