The Sphinx, a legendary figure from Greek mythology, is renowned for her enigmatic riddles and formidable presence. Part woman and part lion, she stood as a guardian, challenging anyone who approached her gates with a riddle. Only those who could answer her riddle were allowed passage, while others met a grim fate. It was Oedipus who finally solved her riddle, bringing an end to her reign of terror over Thebes. This fine art bronze sculpture captures the essence of the Sphinx's mystique and power. Hand-tooled with precision using the lost wax casting method, the sculpture showcases intricate details, from the golden bronze finish of her skin tones to the flowing tresses of her hair. Her voluptuous figure and regal face add to the allure and grace of the artwork. Mounted on a unique pedestal that depicts the Sphinx as the feet of the pedestal, guarding the woman above, this sculpture is not just a decorative piece but a symbol of mystery and strength. The dark brown polish enhances the beauty of the bronze, while the black marble base provides a stable foundation for display. Signed by the artist Aldo Vitaleh, this sculpture is destined to become a cherished family heirloom, embodying the timeless allure of Greek mythology and fine artistry.
