Escultura, Aquiles con Elmo - Cera - Finales del siglo XX

Achilles with helmet (handcrafted wax sculpture).
Achilles with Helmet (handmade wax sculpture).

Amazing wax sculpture of the head of Achilles with war helmet.
He is one of the main characters of Homer’s Iliad, an almost invincible demigod who led his armies in several victorious battles.
The helmet features beautiful friezes with depictions of griffins and greyhounds.
The sculpture was found abandoned in a warehouse, totally covered by a thick layer of dust (it was slightly cleaned to show the beauty of the piece, but it wasn’t polished). From its condition and patina, estimated dating is mid/late 20th century. Decoration and chiselling are made of handcrafted wax, reinforced inside with gypsum, with metal connecting tube.

Dimensions: 67x22x35 cm.
Dating: Mid/late 20th century.
Material: Wax internally reinforced with gypsum.
Origin: Italy.
Technique: handcrafted.
