Donna Fragraria Vase
This exclusive head-shaped vase in fine white ceramic celebrates the authentic beauty of an hard yet fascinating job, the lemon picker. Ideal as vessel for both indoor or outdoor use, it depicts Domitilla, a Sicilian female lemon picker whose sculpted traits are painstakingly rendered, the sinuous lips and stylized ears accented in green. A strikingly realistic crown of vibrant-yellow lemons adorns the vase's rim.
