Vintage Carved Male Bust Sculpture - George Bernard Shaw
Antique marble sculpture of a bearded man, it has been suggested he was made in the likeness of George Bernard Shaw. Great home accents piece for a living room as the superbly carved bust is offset against the rough unfinished base, this striking classic pose would look imposing as part of a garden statues collection. Sculptures of imposing figures were a sign of affluence in the 19th century and many leading figures and rich patrons had their busts carved to reflect their wealth. This sculpture may have been a statesman, composer or writer.
A great addition to your collection of sculptures, garden statues,or home accents.
Sculpture measures 8“ wide by 7.5“ deep by 14.5“ tall and weighs 45 lbs.
This garden statues in good used condition with signs of use commensurate with age,scuffs and marks along with what appears to be a repaired ear on a alabaster rough base which I assume is also a repair (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
