BRONZE OF AN ASTERIX WARRIOR

Item noM1192

Bronze depicting a standing warrior in the style of Asterix. Very beautiful patina on the entire surface. Figure is wearing an animal skin around the waist that is adhered with leather straps that is holding a warrior axe in his rear side. Warrior is also wearing thin boots and a magnificently powerful helmet with two “wings” attached on either side. The figure is posed in a well known stance depicting strength and virility with one arm outstretched with a palm forward the other hand held close to torso clutching a warrior sword. From the facial expression we can deduce that the warrior has a serious battle on his mind and is in preparation. Signed “Laporte” on the base as inscribed.
