The bronze sculpture, renowned as the "Allegory of Bavaria," eloquently portrays Tellus Bavarica, the embodiment of Bavaria itself, adorned with symbols of prosperity and abundance. With a contemplative gaze, modest bust, and generous midsection, she exudes opulence while maintaining an air of enigmatic tranquility. Crafted by the skilled hands of A. Carrier, this handmade bronze statue stands as a testament to the artist's mastery, capturing the essence of Bavaria with grace and sophistication. Resting her foot atop a barrel, she cradles a skinned elk across her right arm, creating a composition that seamlessly blends symbolism and artistic expression. Standing tall and commanding respect, the Allegory of Bavaria sculpture embodies a striking presence that captivates the observer. The elk draped around her lower half and the poised positioning of her foot convey a sense of natural grace and abundance. The artist's signature, A. Carrier, proudly marks the base of the sculpture, serving as a seal of quality and craftsmanship. The use of the traditional "Lost Wax Method" in the sculpture's creation ensures meticulous detail, allowing for the intricate representation of the subject, while a rich dark brown patina finish adds depth and character to the overall aesthetic. Notably, the sculpture is signed by H. Gerhard, further enhancing its provenance and artistic lineage.
