Might be a useful thread in general.

Can someone please identify this statue? By whom and where is it?

Don't recognise it, but it looks like it's either a modern piece or a stylised muse (maybe Urania?).

following the lines of the folds of the 'fabric' it certainly appears to be it

Apparently it's in the Yale University Art Gallery.

as a side note.... you might find it useful that you can now (actually have been for a while) able to search google by the image..

when you go into google click on 'images' and the search bar has a little camera in it, you click that and it will ask you for the url of the image you want to search on....

I've found it to be a very handy little tool at times (especially with the odd bits and pieces that turn up on FB from time to time)

Oooh, that's very clever. I've always thought it woukd be good to be able to search for images. Thanks, OE.

Mind you, I quite like things that are difficult to search for. Quite a challenge to work out what to put in the text search box.

That is very ingenious, OE. Thanks for that!

And bem - how the hell did you know that statue?

Oh, all right, take away the magic.
I'd love to be able to say that I'm highly cultured and widely travelled. However, it's actually down to enjoying tracking things down on the internet.

Tin Eye is another good one to add to your bookmarks.

Tin Eye looks for the exact image; Google Image Search ranges more widely to find pictures it thinks looks similar.

I found Google Image Search very useful when I was trying to put names to clipart of flags of all nations. About 90% of the time it was able name the country straight off, simply by finding similar pictures and correlating what the pages had in common.

The most difficult ones to identify were the flag of Vatican City (which Google tentatively thought belonged to Babylon), and the old flag of Rwanda.

Well, I was right in that it's a modern piece, but it wasn't a muse. Looks in the style of a muse though :)

It's still older than I thought.
And just look at the fabric on either side of her waist (back view)- you can actually see light shining through; it is that thin.
What craftsmanship.
