Introducing the iconic sculpture titled "Descending Night" by renowned German sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. This captivating piece portrays a nude female angel, her head gently lowered and her arms delicately brushing her cascading hair. Exquisitely detailed, her majestic wings span with grace and beauty. "Descending Night" and its counterpart, "Rising Day," were originally designed as fountain figures for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. After the exhibition, Weinman replicated both sculptures in two sizes: approximately 24 inches tall and approximately 57 inches tall. This particular sculpture is signed by A. A. Weinman, the talented artist behind its creation. Born in Germany, Weinman immigrated to the United States at a young age. He honed his craft as an apprentice to carver Frederick Kaldenberg, while also studying drawing and modeling at Cooper Union in the evenings. Later, he furthered his artistic education at the Art Students League under the guidance of the esteemed American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Weinman's repertoire includes a wide range of sculptures, from portrait statues to captivating and dramatic pieces. Notable among his works are the Fountain of the Water Centaurs at the Missouri State Capitol, Riders of the Dawn at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina, and renowned pieces like "Rising Sun," "Duet," "Narcissus," and "Aphrodite." Embrace the beauty and artistry of "Descending Night," a true masterpiece in bronze sculpture. Whether displayed as a focal point in your collection or as an enchanting centerpiece, it captivates with its ethereal presence and meticulous craftsmanship. Experience the enduring legacy of Adolph A. Weinman and add this extraordinary sculpture to your artistic journey.

High quality

I have both pieces and they are excellent quality. I’m very pleased with them.

Absolutely stunning!

This Statue is absolutely stunning! I love it. Pictures do not begin to do it justice. I just ordered this and it's arrived already. I can't believe the level of protection for shipping. If anything they overprotected it. I have ordered from this company many times and know I will probably order again at a future date. I highly recommend this merchant.
