Known as "Phryne" ( Phryne was a courtesan, or hetaira, who lived in Athens in the 4th century BC.), this highly detailed neoclassical figure of woman on shaped stepped plinth, is in fine condition. Pradier`s model of Phryne was originally made from Parian marble, an entirely appropriate medium in view of the very Grecian subject of the work. The figure stood to a height of almost two meters; with her jewels and drapery highlighted in polychrome and gold, she made a dazzling impression to eye of beholder.

I ordered this Bull for my brother and it is a beauty! It is heavy and has great details!
The statue arrived with broken rod, cracked marble base. And broken rope. I was able to glue the rod and the rope. I disputed the charge with my credit card until the problem with the cracked base is resolved. Mr. Yan asserted tha he will ship a new base. So far I have not received any update. I’m not a happy customer because the statue had been damaged before it was shipped.
Staff was very helpful in my final decision. Even printed out instructions for delivery people on the box . Speedy shipping in bomb proof box . Descending the Night is magical.
Arrived quickly and extremely well pkged. SHE IS STUNNING!
I have both pieces and they are excellent quality. I’m very pleased with them.

We love our sculpture. This is our second erotic piece.
Beautiful Bronze statue. Makes a great addition to my other Bronzhous Bronz collection!
Isn’t this St Jerome? The lion gives it away.
The statue looks even more vital in person. The figures seem alive in their duel as you see and even feel their movement.
Really well done ,thank you Bronzhaus
This bust occupies the central position on a shelf of Imperial German items: A pressed felt pickelhaube to one side and a M1916 Stahlhelm to the other. Frederick perfectly compliments both items. A very nicely done rendering.
Bronze and delivery perfect
Beautiful statue, excellent detail, everything I had hoped for and far price.
