Cosette - Les Miserables
$68 (plus shipping) SOLD

My Piece was inspired by the Broadway play "Les Misérables" Victor Hugo wrote Les Misérables, between 1848 and 1861, to draw attention to "the degradation of man by poverty, the ruin of woman by hunger, the wasting of the child by night." The work succeeded in drawing attention to the working conditions of women and children. Immediately successful, the novel inspired a stage version, parodies, an American film in 1909, and, more recently, a celebrated musical. I really enjoyed creating Cosette one of the characters featured in this play. She is all hand-sculpted out of paper clay as well as her boat. The sail in made from aged and distress paper and antiqued. This pieces measures 7"inches tall. Email me if you have additional questions.
