    Axel Salto (1889-1961) was a Danish sculpture whose works have garnered international acclaim from the art world in recent years. In an Art + Auction article published in 2014, his work was stated as having "a unique ability to mine the primitive nature of the material, working it into polished, sensual forms that reflect both ancient Asian traditions and modern investigations of the natural world" (Blouin Art Info).
