    Over 40 years ago while working on a wrecked car my father found this bronze nude in the trunk. She appears to have castanets in her hands and beautiful detail of a flower and head band in her hair. We can't find any artist markings; we have no idea how old she actually is or if she really is made from bronze. She's been sitting on the shelf in my closet for over 5 years. I would greatly appreciate any information that you could give me regarding this statue.
    Thank you so very much.

      It strikes me as unusual that both arms have a ring around them. Is she hollow? Are the arms removable? (unscrew, maybe?)

      The arms were apparently damaged years ago and someone tried to fix them. As for them being hollow, I don't think so. This bronze nude is heavy so I doubt that it is hollow. Thank for asking.

      Yeah it looks like they were actually broken? Wouldn't you think they would do a better job of attaching them if it had been case in pieces? Weird... Because how could they possibly BREAK off like that?...
