This enchanting bronze sculpture beautifully captures a nostalgic scene from the past, depicting a young boy immersed in the timeless game of hoop rolling, also known as Trundling. The artwork freezes a moment of joy and innocence as the boy merrily rolls the large hoop down the street. This classic child's game required skill and dexterity to keep the hoop upright for extended periods or perform tricks. The boy is meticulously detailed, dressed in the fashion of early 1900s youth. His attire includes rain boots, shorts, and a finely crafted hooded sailor's coat adorned with a charming bow at the center of his chest. Sailor suits like this were a popular choice for young boys during that era. The artist has captured the essence of his character, from his cheerful expression framed by short hair to the beret perched atop his head, revealing his hair beneath. The sculpture features a brown patina with delicate touches of gold in his hair and on his round face. Crafted with utmost care and attention to detail, this sculpture is a 100% bronze masterpiece, reflecting the artist's dedication to the craft. Using the time-honored "Lost Wax Method," the sculpture ensures each intricate nuance is faithfully preserved. It proudly stands on a square black marble base, adding to its overall elegance. The sculpture bears the signature of the artist D.H. Chiparus, making it a remarkable addition to any art collection and a heartwarming representation of childhood nostalgia.
