"Gladiator with Shield and Helmet," Rare, Large Bronze Sculpture with Nude Male

$3,750

About

The first example of this sculpture we have seen, this striking depiction of a male gladiator -- clothed in nothing but a short mail skirt - is shown in the midst of battle, one arm raised with dagger in hand, the other holding a shield decorated with another battle scene in bas relief. The bronze is beautifully patinated in two tones -- a dark charcoal patina and a silvery tone. The sculpture is signed, though we have yet to decipher the name.
