This stunning bronze sculpture features Apollo in classical pose after the celebrated marble sculpture of the "Apollo Belvedere". The nude figure is standing tall with his right arm resting on a tree and his left arm outstretched.
Slung over Apollo’s shoulders is his quiver held in place by a strap. As exactly in the original Apollo Belvedere, the God here appears in magnificent form and physique, and he is shown just moments after releasing his arrow. Apollo stands “contrapposto”, with one leg remaining rigid while the other is relaxed;
This high-quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.
This is a splendid antique bronze sculpture and it will no doubt become the centrepiece of your collection.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
