This piece is based in the States where we will send it on from so good news for US buyers. You are viewing an amazing silvered bronze bust showing a male head who\’s hair fans out at the back into a wing. In tune with art decos preoccupation with aerodynamism and its particular take on perceptions of modernity, the figure looks like he\’s seen a ghost in a wind tunnel! The piece is the epitome of art deco style and elegance and would make a great addition to any home collection. It reminds me of a mascot you might find on the front of a car, like Sykes\’s famous Silver Spirit found on Rolls Royce\’s hoods.
The piece is a re-casting of the famous Victoire R Lalique statue. The piece sits firmly on a black marble base which has been polished and so is smooth to touch. The patina to the bronze is also smooth to touch and silvered.
