English: Queen of Egypt (51-30 BC) and celebrated for her seductive beauty, Cleopatra is depicted taking her own life with the bite of a poisonous serpent. Writhing in pain, she embodies the baroque taste for plump female beauty and intense emotion. Ivory's unique appeal to the sense of touch helps to convey the vulnerability of her flesh. The piece is signed with the monogram of Adam Lenckhardt, renowned across Europe for the naturalism of his works in ivory.
