   Lovely small marble figures representing young girls in Louis XVI style - to be compared with the work of Falconet, Broche or Tassaert. (See Flora by Tassaert in the Louvre)

   The first is a maenad, follower of Bacchus, surrounded by her attributes: tambourine, thyrsus, grapes. It is most probably the Fall.

   The second young woman holds roses and a sheaf of wheat. On her knees is a pruning knife. It represents perhaps the Summer.

   Some lacks. The head of the summer is reattached.
