Similar, not identical


I mentioned in the previous post that I thought the painter of the double-sided house painter trade sign tried to make both sides identical. The two sides, it turned out, are different, but not so different that it's obvious that was the maker's intent. The same goes for this carving of the seated bathing beauty. Is she supposed to be one person or two?
