Signed Barye Strong Large Lion Bronze Statue

"Signed Barye Strong Large Lion Bronze Statue"
This intimidating lion takes a break and relaxes. He lies down and looks as if he puts his paw in paw and waits patiently for the next encounter. He is the gate keeper he stays alert at all times and watches for any unknown creatures to cross into his territory. The features on the lion are magnificent and are very life like. His undercoat is long and you can see the fur stringing off of his underside while he puts his legs to the side. His mane is grand and he has gigantic paws which will take anyone or thing out in one swift swipe. You can see the details beautifully. This lion has a brown patina and was casted using the “Lot Wax Method” it is mounted on a black marble base. This sculpture is signed by Barye . Antoine Louis Barye was born in France September 24 th , 1796 and he died 1875. Most of his work was focused exclusively on animals, most of them wild. He was considered and Animalier, a sculptor whose works are mostly animals. Barye is a very accomplished sculptor and artist, he has exhibited some of his works in the Salon and some of his works reside in the Louvre. This sculpture is a reproduction and in very good condition.
