Large Jugendstil sculpture from France, marked 1891. Cast zinc, cold patina. Base on green flamed marble.
‘Metal has partial patina and wear in places, but overall is in very nice condition.’
Depiction of a winged genius on a lion (presumably the Belfort lionby Bartholdi), where the torch and its light are brought to humanity by the sculpture of the genius, which stands for wisdom. The sculpture is impressive with its tremendously detailed form, the appealing anatomy and the expansive depiction.
49 x 18 cm
Height 53 cm
Weight 15 kg
On the back there is a sign with the brand of a foundry in Paris, France (Fabrication francaise Paris). The photos were taken with a spotlight, the patina of the genius is naturally a bit darker. Shipping is possible, but pick-up or the use of a forwarding agent would be preferable!
