This famous piece entitled “Descending Night” was crafted by German sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman. It depicts a beautiful nude angel. Her head tilted downward, her fingers are combing through her hair that cascades in soft waves down her back. Crafted with exquisite detail, the angels wings spread wide from her back. The body features a very feminine angel with distinctive curves and lines that define womanhood. It is signed A.A Weinman. “Descending Night”, and its companion work, “Rising Day” were originally designed as fountain figures fort he 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. Following the exhibition, Weinman reproduced both works in two sizes, one measuring approximately 24 inches tall and the other approximately 57 inches.
