This is a wonderful and high-quality solid bronze sculpture and fountain in the form of a delightfull Neo-Classical lady holding an amphora, from the last quarter of the 20th century.
This beautiful large bronze statue features a composed lady dressed in Neo-Classical attire with a long vest and holding an amphora with both her arms on top of her right-hand shoulder. If required it can be connected to the water supply and water will spill out of the amphora.
There is unspeakable beauty in the whole pose, which is full of dignity. Her face slightly turned downward with her eyes closed, her left-hand arm placed above her head in the act of aiding the other arm in supporting the amphora. It is difficult to think of this work as a lifeless bronze - it seems indeed to move in front of our eyes, and yet to remain at rest.
It stands against a tall rectangular vertical bronze column, which looks perfect when being placed against a wall.
This high-quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.
Without a doubt, it will attract lots of attention wherever placed.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
