Isamu Noguchi, Leda, 1942. Carved alabaster sculpture.


Among the first pieces I worked on when I finally got a studio at 33 Macdougal Alley in Greenwich Village, following my return to New York from internment at the War Relocation Camp at Poston, Arizona, was an alabaster carving I called Leda. Another was Noodle of Botticino marble and subsequently Time Lock of Languedoc marble and Mother and Child of onyx.
