Not currently for sale will be in a future auction


Extremely large at 22.5 in tall by 16.5 inches wide at the knees for the bronze alone, and on its original wooden base over 25 inches tall by almost 18 in. wide at the knees. Very fine casting and finishing. Spend time looking at the pictures. You'll see how crisp every detail is. Cold gilt applied to the face only. Very distinctive sculpting, with a large head and strong neck and head tilted ever so slightly to one side. The consecration plate on the bottom was loose and had clearly been previously removed, so I removed it so I could photograph the inside. To give a sense of how substantial the statue is, the copper consecration plate weighs a pound and a half by itself. Comes from an old European Collection. Weighs 45+lbs
