Well executed large, sculptural, etched glass vase by Czech artist Jindřich Tockstein (1914-1975). This is a uniquely ambitious and complex work in glass that shows off the artist's skills to full effect. There are many figures in this work which are depicted in the round. Most likely the images of a few nude women and a kneeling man compose a parable or an allegory, but I do not know it.
