A very beautiful sculpture of a seated young Bacchus.
Bacchus is in Roman mythology the god of wine and is also known in Greek mythology as Dionysos.
The young god is depicted naked, with grape vines in his hair. He has a bat in his hand and a lion’s skin draped around him, a rare scene.
It was made with craftsmanship of a beautiful quality bronze that features a warm patina. It is also mounted on a green veined marble plateau.
Length: 35 cm.
Height: 26 cm.
Depth: 18 cm.
Weight: 8 kg.
Origin: presumably France.
Date: 19th century.
The work is cast in parts and there is a bit of slack between those parts. However, this is not disturbing and otherwise it has minimal traces of ageing. It is in good condition, the photos speak for themselves.
A decorative and classic bronze statue of beautiful quality!
It will be carefully packaged for registered shipping (insured and with track & trace)
