Description
Sculpture, Dancing Faun - 79 cm - Bronze - Late 20th century
Italy

This is a beautiful, top-quality statue of "Fauno Danzante" (not a commercial bronze, please see the details in photos), of large dimensions and 80 cm high. It has been created in a single block by the last master craftsmen, who carefully guard those ancient techniques and processing methods, now on the way to extinction.
The statue has been created with a single casting in underground concrete moulds, created and destroyed every single time, and subsequently hand-finished and chiselled by Italian master craftsmen.
The original Dancing Faun was found in Pompeii and is preserved at the Archaeological Museum of Naples.

Dimensions: 79x33x29 cm
