    The intricately carved polychrome painted piece is entirely original throughout, retaining the original pigmentation with a fabulous aged patina.
     
    It has a carved and gilt-painted signature on the base that reads:-

    A rare piece and a fabulous original example with two carved figures.
     
    Bohumil Kafka (1878-1942) Biography.
     
    Bohumil Kafka was a Czech sculptor and educator. He studied in Prague with the sculptor Josef Václav Myslbek before moving to Vienna and then to Paris to continue his studies.
     
    He worked in London, Berlin and Rome before returning and settling in Prague. He often worked in a symbolist and expressive style. He was a notable animalist, as well as being known for his decorative sculpture. He is considered a predecessor of the Art Nouveau style and was greatly influenced by the works of Auguste Rodin.
