Why We Love This

Classic French portrait sphinx. After Napoleon's Egyptian campaign, the sphinx became a popular form in France, both architecturally and decoratively. Portrait busts of the women of the French court were added to the sphinx, as in this example. This bust was hand-cast in the 20th-century from an original portrait bust of Madame du Barry of the court of Louis XV.
