This bronze replica pays tribute to the commanding martial giant, Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French from 1804 to 1815. Known for his legal reconstruction, the Napoleonic code, and his leadership during the Napoleonic Wars, Napoleon left a lasting impact on European history. In this sculpture, Napoleon is depicted seated upon a cannon, his countenance bearing a forlorn expression as he reflects on his fate following his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815. Despite his past victories and dominion over much of Europe, his ultimate downfall is evident in his somber demeanor. Crafted using the archaic method of lost-wax casting, this sculpture showcases meticulous attention to detail and is stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. Mounted upon a variegated black marble base bearing the signature of the artist Aldo Vitaleh, this replica serves as a poignant reminder of Napoleon's triumphs and tribulations throughout his tumultuous reign.
