Height without base: 13" Weight : 25 LBS Inventory:15Y4958951 Original or Reproduction: ReproductionThis is a bronze rendition of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin's,"Eternal Idol" (1889). This is masterful sculpture honoring the love between two souls. It shows the carnal embrace of the body that owns the beloved soul of all you love, of the one you idol, above all else like a deity, ceaselessly. It is well known that his clandestine lover, as well as his fellow famous sculptor-colleague, Camille Claudel, was often a source of inspiration and model behind his works of art. To best describe the emotion evoked through this piece, it is best to let the artist words speak,"My very dearest down on both knees before your beautiful body which I embrace.” - Letter from Rodin to Camille Claudel (1844). The writer Rainer Maria Rilke wrote the following about the Eternal Idol: "Always the same enchanting strength. You dare not assign a single meaning to it (as is so often the case with Rodin). It has thousands of meanings. This mastery was cast using the antiquated technique of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish. This heart-piercing sculpture is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Auguste Rodin's signature.
Milo captures the beauty, strength and movement in this well crafted horse head bronze. Its size and shape makes it easy to place in many room settings and still make a statement. Bravo!
This original Milo bronze is absolutely stunning! It’s attention to life-like detail is outstanding. This beautiful wild life bronze commands both attention and admiration. We feel very fortunate to own this timeless work of art.
The quality and detail of the statue are great. And the whimsical Dali design is wonderful. It is everything I hoped for. Thanks
Extremely beautiful. Well done!
This piece is high quality. Each piece of the sculpture is separate and can be displayed separately and moved around on the carpet. This means that the sculpture can be changed from time to time making it more interesting.
Would recommend sculptures like this for the flexibility of display.
The pieces are perfect without any blemishes and look to be new.
Will buy again from this provider.
Excellent quality bronze sculpture consistent with pictures and description. Very pleased with this purchase.
This is a nice addition to our library shelves. It sits on some home design books and really stands out. I have already received several compliments.
Excellent, beautifully crafted, totally art at it's highest form. Great price point and shipping from UPS, very secure.
The Elephant is amazing

Thanks, Marc Silverman Rockville Maryland 20854
Love the blue Havana Man. This site has great bronze art. Best collection I have seen in a long time.
Very presentable and lifelike. Demonstrates dolphins at play and coveys the joy therein.
Lovely piece. I may want another Diana with a dog. Perhaps at a discount. What is available? Expert and fast shipping. You guys are great. Thanks, Rick
Hi folks, I am a figure artist living in a very conservative community where the local art venues are reluctant to exhibit the simplest nudes. To see your array of uncensored realism is encouraging. The one piece I have received from you will hopefully be the beginning of my collection.
