Price: $2500.00
Beautiful antique bronze sculpture of Andromeda artist signed Ernest Wante. Ernest Wante a Belgian sculptor (1872-1960) created this wonderful nude gilt bronze sculpture circa 1900 of Andromeda chained to the rock waiting to be devoured by the sea monster. She was eventually saved by Perseus. Here Andromeda is portrayed as a beautiful gilt bronze nude with long flowing hair, she is chained to the rock as a sacrifice to the sea monster. Perseus returning from the slaying of a giant serpent wearing Mercury's sandals and helmet was flying home and saw her chained to the rock. He flew down, freed her, slayed the sea monster and married Andromeda. One of the few mythological stories that has a good ending. The bronze is inscribed on the lower left side E. Wante. It is also titled ANDROMEDA at the front of the waves just below her feet. The bronze measures 11-1/4 inches high, 5 inches wide at its widest point. Weight 15 lbs. It is in very good condition showing only some minor rubbing to the patina and a small scuff on her right elbow. Guaranteed to please as are all our items. (Item #73139)
