Condition: This sculpture is in perfect condition. Bronze Dimensions :Height 8.5" x Width 8.5" Weight : 5 LBS Inventory 78YRD10184687 Sale@@@ Original or Reproduction: OriginalReza Shah Pahlavi, also spelled Riza Shah Pahlevi, original name Reza Khan (born March 16, 1878, Alasht, Mazanderan province, Iran—died July 26, 1944, Johannesburg), Iranian army officer who rose through army ranks to become shah of Iran (1925–41) and began the regeneration of his country Iran. Reza Shah the Great of Iran, Pahlavi I Father of the Nation and Creator of the Modern Iran Reza Khan was a true Republican, he wanted to establish a Republic in Iran and become the first president; however, the traditional combine institutes of the Persian Royal Courthouse, monarchists, Feudals and Shiite Mullahs saw their social classes benefits in danger and forced him to become a shah. Reza Khan desired to be the first president of Iran and reform Iran. His desire was for the people to elect one worthy president after another and revive Iran. Reza Khan wanted a Secular Republic to cut off the hands of the Shiite Islam from the government. Deep inside, Reza Khan despised the corrupt institutes of monarchy, feudalism and religion. The history would have been different and today’s Iran would have been heaven if Reza Khan had gotten his way! Unfortunately, the Monarchists, Mullahs and Feudals continued the tradition of dictatorship and eventually the Absolutist Monarchial Dictatorship gave birth to the Theocratic Shiite Dictatorship of the 1979. The Old Monarchist – Shiite Brotherhood tied Reza Khan’s hands and avoided the creation of the Democratic Republic of Iran; furthermore, they put Iran in a path of traditional tyranny which resulted in a Theocratic Dictatorship of IRI. Throughout the history of Iran, Monarchists and Mullahs have always gone hand in hand. Every time a true reformer wanted to develop a change, the Brotherhood of Monarchists and Mullahs have blocked it! If Reza Khan would have gotten his way, Iran’s destiny would have been different; Monarchy would seize to exist and IRI would have never been born! This sculpture was cast using the ancient old "Lost Wax Method" stained in brown patina finish for preservation. 100% handmade and 100% bronze and signed by the artist Kanaev.
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.
I ordered Lady Justice for a very special occasion, I was not disappointed. Before I ordered her, I spent a lot of time looking at different sites worldwide, and decided on Bronzhaus. Ordering/Delivery/Cost were seamless.
I live in Ontario Canada, and delivery was prompt and fast(4 days).
She came wrapped so snug and packed, there was no movement at all, even though Custom's inspection made the box look damaged, she wasn't. The detail is perfect, the colouring is beautiful and varied. Some spots on the finish look "rough" but either by design or accident, this does not deter from her beauty, if anything it gives it a historic weathered look, and makes her look more authentic and regal. Overall, very happy and will be appreciated as a gift.
The ballerina goes so well with the Cirque du Soleil trapeze work. I now have three stick figures from Bronzhaus (I have others that are not stick figures). I love art. I love sculpture. I love beauty. I have several other bronzes for which I have paid in excess of $10,000. I have had other artist friends of mine, when they are making a delivery or just coming for a visit and they always notice the bronzes. Not one of them has ever questioned, criticized or denigrated these works. I do avoid, however, the copies that are well-known in their original state. But for now I am very much enjoying the extra "bay leaf" in the artistic meatloaf that these bronzes bring to my home and garden.
Always consistent high quality! Real treasures in a time of plastic junk offered by others.
Beautiful piece! Glad to own it!
This is a marvelous parody of Rodin's The Thinker. It is well made and detailed. Would make a nice bookend or desktop art object.
