Anonymous German Artist: Standing Male Nude - "Enlightenment"

Kunsthandel Norbert Thiel, Berlin has recently listed this nice unsigned, but dated 1900, color pencil drawing of a standing male nude with the pine cone topped staff symbolic of "enlightenment" on eBay Germany. The pine cone has been used throughout history as a symbolic representation of human enlightenment.
