Bettina is inspired by a vintage, terracotta sculpture – a nude woman in repose – that still lives in South’s (Palmer Smith’s) personal collection today. Crafted in Sculptor White and set on an Oralia Gold platform base, Bettina is the essence of early 20th Century, semi-abstract female sculpture.
South + English (Palmer Smith and David Ebbetts respectively) are avid art collectors and count sculpture among their most prized possessions. In fact, South told Luxe Magazine, “If the house were on fire, art would be the first thing out.” S+E has lovingly created a collection of sculpture inspired by their world travels. Nearly every piece in the collection has an inspirational antecedent, and the original lives in one of S+E’s residences.
