Gaine of Renaissance Sculpture

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Gaine. Renaissance sculpture. Maison de Pierre, Toulouse, France. In sculpture, the lower part of a figure of which the head, with sometimes the bust, is alone carved to represent nature, the remaining portion presenting, as it were, the appearance of a sheath closely enveloping the body, and consequently broader at the shoulders than at the feet.” -Whitney, 1911
