20th Century Art Deco Sculpture Figure Bronze Nymph Daphne By Milo

About

Beautiful Art Deco style sculpture, depicting the nimph Daphne with a laurel crown in his hands that it was given as a prize to the winners of the competitions. Daphne a minor figure in Greek mythology, is a naiad, a variety of female nymph associated with fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of freshwater. She is said by ancient sources variously to have been a daughter of the river god Peneus and the nymph Creusa in Thessaly (Hyginus Fabulae 203) or of Ladon (the river Ladon in Arcadia) or Pineios, and to Ge (or Gaia) (Pausanias and others). Thenceforth Apollo developed a special reverence for laurel. At the Pythian Games which were held every four years in Delphi in honour of Apollo, a wreath of laurel gathered from the Vale of Tempe in Thessaly was given as a prize. Hence it later became customary to award prizes in the form of laurel wreaths to victorious generals, athletes, poets and musicians, worn as a chaplet on the head. Signed Milo (Miguel Fernando Lopez) Miguel Fernando Lopez in short: Milo, is a Portuguese artist and sculptor who has purchased with his large oeuvre an international reputation. Milo was born on June 12, 1955 in Lisbon, Portugal. In his early years he developed a passion for sculpting. Because his father was working as an antique dealer, Lopez got early in touch with different kinds of art. Made using hot cast and the lost wax method: plum bronze, the purest form of bronze. This method was perfected several thousand years ago by the Greeks.
