Fleeing Paris in WW11, Alberto Giacometti witnessed terrible carnage which he later captured in four bronze sculptures of isolated body parts: a hand, a nose, a head, and a 7-foot leg (‘la Jambe”) to be auctioned at Christie’s in early November with a high estimate of $15m.Two years ago Christie’s sold a casting of the hand (“La Main”) for $26m, more than double the expected price. Giacometti conceived the project in 1947, but didn’t get around to finishing La Jambe until 10-years later. This piece is cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and is 100% Bronze with a dark brown patina and is signed Giacometti.
