European Metal Sculpture of Seated Mars

Late 19th Century



This metal statue of the Roman god of war, Mars, most likely has a brass base, and composite metal for the rest. The metalwork is very detailed, making the statue come to life through its quality and its rich brown/black patina. The design of the statue of Mars resembles the noted bronze statue by Jean Louis Gregoire. However, the shield and base are unique to this piece. There is a slight chip on the shield, shown in the gallery, but is barely noticeable. The photographs were taken on a marble tabletop.
