Richard Saltonstall Greenough
American (1819-1904)

"Love Bound"
Signed and dated 1884
Marble
29" high x 24" deep x 15" wide

 An alternate view which shows the wings of the angel
 

 The modeling of the eyes, as in other pieces by Greenough, is extremely expressive and poignant. The tortoise in this piece is also exceptionally realistic and expressive and one of the more accurate and dramatic renderings of an animal in 19th century American marble statuary.
