    The artists who created pieces like this don't get the recognition they deserve.

Its for sure beautiful. But if the artist was a great one from the art-nouveau period then he would have already recognition enough by other works .

LOVE the flying lady hood ornaments!!! I posted one in February of 2011 and was fascinated by all the history involved in hood ornaments!!! Cadillacs and Rolls Royce's being my favorites!!! The flying goddess was a very popular design...I love them...and miss these on the new cars!!!
