MASQUE DE FEMME VOTIVE LALIQUE :
MASQUE DE FEMME VOTIVE LALIQUE, The half-closed eyes, the sensuous lips, this feminine face, divine and youthful, is gracefully adorned by an aquatic motif. The fish with their finely chiseled details encircle her face in a danse, skimming her cheeks with their rough, embossed scales. The piece was originally conceived as part of a fountain, but René Lalique equated the mask with the realms of water and felinity which so fascinated him. He transformed the virginal beauty into a decorative motif in the spirit of Art Deco and artfully contrasted the transparency of water with the sensual quality of satin glass.
