Garden Statue of the Uffizi Boar

About

After the antique, a finely modelled and weathered artificial limestone model possibly by Austin and Seeley. Their work was rarely marked, but an illustration in the London firms catalogue of 1844 shows an "Uffizi Boar" after the famous antique which is on an integral rectangular plinth. The boar is depicted having been suddenly disturbed from his sleep, half rising, showing his tusks, his ears twitching, his snout sniffing the air trying to detect the source of danger. He is growling as, indeed, this is a dangerous wild animal. This is a copy of the famous boar in the Uffizi Museum in Florence, itself a copy of an antique marble statue found in Rome. It has terrific presence as a figurative work and this example is much enhanced by lots of moss and lichen accumulated over many years of exposure to the elements. Austin and Seeley supplied garden ornaments to many well-known gardens such as Osbourne, Chatsworth, Carlton Towers and Shrublands, to name a few. English circa 1850. The whole is raised on a contemporary plinth base which can be removed if not required. The plinth base measures 65cm high, depth 87cm, width 138cm. The total height of the boar on the Stand 139cm, circa 1850.
