Native American Indian Bronze Sculpture
For weekly notifications of new arrivals in your categories of interest please click HERE.
This is a sympathetically modelled bronze statue depicting that noblest of subjects, the native American Indian, in a typical battle-ready pose and brandishing a tomahawk - which was used both as a weapon and as a tool used for everyday tasks.
The modelling of the body itself is always a challenge for even the most talented of sculptors and this is a fine example of how it should be done.
Those who appreciate bronzes of this quality will also take pleasure from the authentic nature of the costume, especially the use of feathers which was of course widespread in the native Indian culture. The modelling of these details is particularly fine and worthy of a closer look - please see the photographs provided in order to see what we mean.
We are very pleased to be able to offer this bronze Native American Indian sculpture in excellent condition and we really do urge you to examine the photographs to satisfy yourself of this.
If at all possible we would encourage you to pay us a visit at our north London showroom and see for yourself just how impressive this piece is. Your visit will be worthwhile because we also have many other fine bronze statues and other bronzes for you to view.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
