This is one of the most amusing and amazing objects we owe. It is a small sculpture (10 cm high and 10 cm with) in bronze over a grey marble. The sculpture has two different patinas a golden one for the woman and a darker tone for the pig. The woman is riding as a lady, in the sense that she is seated, not with the legs one at each side. In fact, she seems to be trying to tame an unharnessed pig. It is very heavy that it is a solid bronze sculpture not a petite bronze. It has no a single mark nor it is signed. We bought it in July 2002 in Av. Nuñez in a shop that remained open for a few months. It was very cheap something like a kilogram of good steak, I do not remember the price of the dollar in relation to our money that is why I am trying to relate to what I could by at that time, now it would be something like 6 U$. The reason is tha Art Deco in Cordoba is not popular as I told in another post.
