A glass statue of a woman from the Old Testament designed by Lisa Larson in the 1970s. ``The Bathing of Susanna,'' a story in the Apocrypha of the Old Testament, is the story of a beautiful woman, Susanna, being tried by two old men.

The synopsis of the story is as follows. Susanna is a wealthy and pious Jewish woman who is seen one day bathing in her garden by two malevolent old men. They approach Susanna, but when she refuses, they falsely testify that Susanna has been having an affair with a young man. Susannah is about to be put to death, but young Daniel appears and proves her innocence and exposes the old men's perjury. In the end, Susanna is saved and the wrongdoing old men are punished.

The story explores themes of justice, integrity, and courage in the face of wrongful charges, motifs that are featured in many works of art. It is relatively rare for Lisa Larson to seek motifs from the Bible, and this work stands as an apocryphal story among her body of work.

After leaving her old company, Gustavsberg, in 1980, Lisa Larson began working as a freelance designer, receiving requests from companies across Europe. This is an object that I created during my free time at the request of a Swedish glass manufacturer called Royal Krona.

This item is made of crystal glass and has high transparency, making it an excellent piece that creates subtle differences in expression when viewed from various angles. It is also a very heavy piece, weighing approximately 3 kg, and is the largest of Lisa Larson's glass works. Although it can stand on its own as is, it does not have its original wooden base, so we recommend displaying it with a book stand.

Lisa Larson (1931-2024)

A world-renowned ceramic artist representing Sweden. Born in the village of Härlunda, in the Älmhult district of Kronoberg county in the Småland region of southern Sweden.

When she was young, she aspired to be a clothing designer, but after enrolling at Gothenburg University of the Arts, she studied ceramics. One day, he was discovered by Stig Lindberg at a competition, and after a one-year trial period, he officially joined Gustavsberg as a designer. Shortly after, in 1955, he announced the Lilla zoo series, and in 1964 he devised the Afrika series, famous for its lion statues.

In addition to Gustavsberg, Lisa Larsson has also provided designs for Höganäs, domestic retail giant Åhléns, and German pottery manufacturer Rosenthal. After leaving Gustavsberg in 1979, he was active in various fields while continuing his creative activities freely, taking the position of a freelance artist under a voluntary contract with a company rather than an exclusive contract. In 1979 and 1981, he held solo exhibitions at the Seibu Department Store in Tokyo, and his solo exhibition in 1981 is said to have attracted 70,000 visitors.
