  Bacchus (Dionysos),
God of wine and song,
supported by portraits of
several faces of "Bacchantes,"
(the followers of Bacchus ).

Larimar is a beautiful gem material
that comes only from
the Dominican Republic.
The natural matrix
is incorporated in the design
to represent the "hair".

The sculptured head is fitted
in a carved Sterling Silver cast,
163 grams.

 The Gem Sculpture is displayed
on a Siberian Jade carved base,

Serras-Herman is probably one of the most extensively trained artists
working in gem carving in North America-- and it shows in her work.
Coming to gem carving from the vantage point of large-scale sculpture,
Helen Serras-Herman creates miniature masterpieces
underscored by centuries of art history."
