This is a elegant bronze Grand Tour sculpture of Augustus of Prima Porta, Circa 1860 in date.
The full-length portrait statue is of Augustus Caesar, the first emperor of the Roman Empire. Augustus is depicted barefooted and is intended to be a divine representation, as this was a standard depiction of Gods or heroes in classical iconography. He stands with his arm outreached wearing a tunic with a cuirass breast plate on a stepped Siena Marble pedestal.
This high quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional 'lost wax' process.
In really excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
