"Amazon Queen," the prized winner of the Paris Salon in 1911, stands as a remarkable testament to artistry and craftsmanship. This semi-solid bronze sculpture is a marvel of sculptural technique, with arms and legs seamlessly fitted and pinned to the torso. The depiction of the Amazon Queen, Hippolyta, is a mesmerizing blend of strength and femininity, capturing her strong features and muscular physique while preserving her inherent beauty. To truly appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship of this work, one must explore it from every angle. Each facet reveals meticulous detailing and skillful execution, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the depth of its artistic beauty. While mythological tales describe the Amazon Queen as single-breasted, artistic renditions often embrace her womanly attributes, a choice that enhances her allure and character. Adorning her hair with the moon of Diana, the huntress, showcases her connection to her patron goddess, adding depth and symbolism to the sculpture. Crafted entirely from 100% bronze, this sculpture exemplifies the enduring legacy of the "Lost Wax Method." This ancient technique ensures that every aspect of the artwork is faithfully reproduced, preserving its quality. The sculpture stands proudly atop a marble base, infusing an air of sophistication into its presentation. The inclusion of the artist R. Leger's signature underscores its provenance and artistic lineage. "Amazon Queen" is more than just a sculpture; it is a work of art that embodies the strength and beauty of a legendary warrior. Whether displayed in a private collection or a public space, it serves as a reminder of the timeless allure of mythological tales and the skill of talented artists like R. Leger.
