This beautiful work of Modernist sculptural art Plexiglass is by Sochi TPK Art of Sochi, USSR (1922 - 1991).
Plexiglass is a type of acrylic, developed as a lightweight and shatterproof alternative to glass, the Plexiglass of this piece has bubbles introduced into it to create the Pulegoso (internally bubbled) effect. The internal foam Pulegoso makes this piece appear as of it was carved and polished from a giant Carnelian crystal geode. These exceptional foam Pulegoso Plexiglass pieces were produced in very limited quantities of c. 70, making this piece a very rare find.
This retro Modernist piece will make an excellent accent piece to a room with similarly themed Mid Century, Modernist or Retro decor.
