Marble sculpture

by Yamada Masaharu
Japan, dated 1992

A white marble sculpture of a twisted strip. The material is predominantly white in tone, with some black markings. The sculpture is mounted an oval, cream coloured stone plinth. It is signed on the base ‘le baiser. Masaharu Yamada. 1992.11.21’

“Le baiser” is “kiss” in French, making it likely that the sculptor Yamada Masaharu was or is active in France.
