Not sure if this original bronze has a name other than the references of "Man turning a capstan with large chain links". Great aesthetic form with accurate anatomical movement make this an appealing sculpture. A capstan is a rotating machine developed for use on sailing ships to apply force to ropes and cables. A great addition to your French sculpture, art bronze collection or nautical themed man cave.
