Nan Condron was an important early model for Epstein and may be the figure for his Maidenhood sculpture for the British Medical Association building (now Zimbabwe House) on the Strand, London. Nan was an unconventional model with long, willowy limbs and, as shown here, delicate hands with long, bony fingers. Epstein was a carver and a caster. He was interested in both methods of sculpting.
