A prestigious pair of bronze candle holders gilt by fire-gilding. The focus is on two wonderful centaurs.

The centaur is a creature of Greek mythology whose figure originates from the sacrilegious love between the king of the Lapiths, Ixion, and a double of the goddess Hera, Nephele, from whose union was born, in fact, Centaur, a deformed creature who mated with the mares of Mount Pelion thus originating a race of hybrid creatures, half men and half horses.
Impressive anatomy, the face in particular is represented with a half perfectly human and the other half of beast.
Perfect condition!

    object 1 staat niet stabiel, object 2: pootje afgebroken (was al eens hersteld met een magneet!). Beide objecten daarenboven grondig moeten opkuisen. Teleurstellend dus. Wat mij betreft: een miskoop.
