    It is by Jeaque Coutseau, the famous diver!

    He used his crazy cat to carve it out of a piece of rock he found while diving!

    (His cat went crazy because he used to take it on diving expeditions with him.)

    You have a one in a million piece there!

        Hello AZ.

        I finally found one just like yours, I believe...here it is...

        figurine

        Lalique, René (Jules)

        Enamel, glass, and topaz hair ornament and brooch by Lalique, 1900; in the Victoria and Albert … (credit: Courtesy of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London)(born April 6, 1860, Ay, Fr.-died May 5, 1945, Paris) French jeweler and glassmaker. Trained in Paris and London, he opened his own firm in Paris in 1885 and soon acquired clients such as Sarah Bernhardt. Reacting against machine-produced jewelry featuring precious gems, he designed elegant and fantastic jewelry with less conventional gemstones (tourmaline, cornelian, etc.) and materials such as horn. His designs contributed significantly to the Art Nouveau movement and later the Art Deco movement. His interest in architectural glass led him to develop the style of molded glass for which he is famous, characterized by iced surfaces, elaborate patterns in relief, and occasionally applied or inlaid colour.

        "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

              Ah, WhoDey...debating with you has sharpened my mind.

              I love research. I can find anything. *evil laugh*

              In answer to your question, just a little bit of internet research and the

              right keywords, and the determination not to give up...

              it was a "defining" moment. *2nd evil laugh*

                                Sorry to hear about your mom passing, AZ.

                                Re the Black Forest carving of madonna and child...first all bavarian carvings are made by the Swiss (it's a common misconception). Later on, I'll back up everything I'm relaying here. First, will you look at these next two pictures and let me know if they match your figurine? I'll hold off looking further until you say yeah or neigh. Then that will be my starting point for the history of the artwork.

                                Ebay Auction, 3rd photo down

                                Bavarian Store, select wood carvings, 2nd page within that section, 3-5th down.

                                I believe there is also a figurine called the Black Madonna and Child....but I am not sure that is not South African Artwork...I think it's Bavarian Black Forest art. Easy enough to figure out.

                                A picture takes me to a whole other place though!

                                AZ---The Black Forest would also make a good thread! Have you seen that Hi-Jacker, KCLady, around?
