Sculpture in calamine with patina by sculptor Louis Moreau (1855-1919)

Calamine sculptures are more scarce than the ones in bronze, its casting are usually tin, lead and calamine, they are beautifully made pieces, not heavy, to give the figures a striking appearance they would give them a patina. Calamine was used a lot at the end of the 19th.
The sculpture is a masonic allegory, it has several mason symbols, like the square, compass and hammer
the column is an element of the lodges, the human figure could be an allegory of a Mason since the cloth that wears resemblances a masonic apron.
the tracing plate that he has in his hands is a masonic element, ancient architects drew their plans on plates and that symbol is still valid
dimensions 45 high, 18 wide
it just has a small defect at the base, see last photo
