The Veiled Lady depicts a young woman with a veil draped over the contours of her realistically rendered features. With her eyes closed and head tilted slightly downward, the figure appears to be either praying or expressing grief.
Veiled women were a popular motif for 19th century Italian sculptors because it allowed them to showcase their artistry. Creating the illusion that a solid material like stone is actually a flowing piece of fabric clinging to a body takes a great level of skill. Since ancient times, sculptors have draped their figures in fabric to spotlight their sculptural prowess.
