My wife found this at an antique store. its large, black, resin/epoxy black mate finish...a woman, on her knees and leaning forward in some pose (her hair is a large part of the piece). Its on a wooden base, and says "1985" on it, and signed by the artist...but appears to be a series of M's (Mmmmm).
This is the item in question
Hi. I bought exactly the same sculpture at a car boot sale and want to find out its history and the artist, Did you get any feedback
Hi, I found you by chance as i am trying to get hold of an Austin sultry awakening sculpture. I was wondering if you would consider selling the piece you have and if so how much? Thank-you for your time, Laine
Thanks for your interest but I just love the sculpture too much to sell. You have at last given me the name of the piece which is great! Do you happen to know what the signature says on the piece or have any other info about it?
Appreciate you getting in touch.
The picture shows the figure named 'Kneeling Nude', Austin item number AP3372, by Malkin.
Source of info: the manufacturer homepage at http://www.austinsculpture.co.uk
Really appreciate you getting in touch to give me the name of the artist. Thanks
I have a "Sultry Awakening" by Klara Sever circa 1979.
This is not the Kneeling Nude, but the standing on one leg nude, with her hair flowing back to the floor...
(Also black finish, I've seen it described as "Blue Bronze"...22"h x 16"w)
I am looking to sell this very beautiful piece, please contact me if interested.
I'm in Phoenix, AZ.
I would be very interested in purchasing the Sultry Awakening by Klara Sever you have for sale. I am based in England, UK - thanks.
thanks for the info on the kneeling nude. sadly, my wife left me for an old boyfriend shortly after i posted this, and she ofcourse walked off with this. life...
hi..are you still looking for the Bronze...Sultry Awakening? I have one for sale.
Hi Jim I found you doing research about the sculpture I was going to play a trick on you and offer 10,000 it's ebay Dave
I was doing some investigation trying to get a price point...I saw one sell for $376 and another for $180?
Hi, I too have one (Sultry Awakening) for sale! This is the larger size one (approx) 22"-H x 16"W, in excellent condition! From my understanding Austin is no longer producing any pieces so you can bet it will be a good investment too. I am willing to hear offers because I really don't know the true value, but like all art that is up to the buyer! P.S. Base has "Austin Prod Inc (copyright) 1979" inscribed on the side of base not stamped and nothing else. I can ship and except Paypal payment! I have more pictures if interested! Thanks Carl & Carolina...

Looks good, Steve. I will wait to hear from you with costs. Thanks.
sorry for the delay in getting back but now had a chance to find out courier cost etc.
I have looked around the web and feel £150.00 for the statue plus £25.00 to cover carriage appears to be a fair value for this statue.
Once again, sorry for the delay.
