Like the paintings, this bronze shows an idealized view of the real crossing that Napoleon`s army made through the St. Bernard Pass in 1800, which enabled the French to surprise the Austrian army and win victory at the Battle of Marengo in June of 1800. As in David`s paintings, this bronze references Hannibal (Annibal), the great Carthaginian general who marched into the Italian peninsula during the Second Punic War and won a great battle against the Romans. Napoleon was known to have quoted Hannibal and likened his attack on the Austrians to Hannibal`s attack upon the Romans. This sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and has a brown patina and is signed . It is mounted on a black marble base and is sure to draw an eye of all those around. It makes a great gift for a history buff or a political lover!
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
I love it. You guys are master craftsmen. I have a few of your works which are also great .Keep adding artists like Moore and Giacometti. I will purchase any and all that you produce.
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.
