Description
Bronze de Riace - 40 cm - Bronze (patiné) - Fin du XXe siècle
Italie

Beautiful sculpture, lost-wax casting with representation of one of the 2 Riace bronzes. The Riace bronzes are two bronze statues from Greece, Magna Graecia or Sicily, dating back to the fifth century B.C. and preserved in great condition. The two statues, found on 16 August 1972 near Riace Marina, in the province of Reggio Calabria, are considered one of the most significant sculptural masterpieces of Greek art, and one of the direct testimonies of the great master sculptors of the classical age. The hypothesis on the origin and authors of the statues are different, but there are not yet elements that allow us to certainly attribute the works to a specific sculptor. The bronzes are kept at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Reggio Calabria. Period: 1980 ca. Size: height 40 cm, width 12 cm. The base measures 10 x 10 cm. Weight: approx. 3 kg.
