A beautiful bronze sculpture group depicting the Gallic King Vercingetorix* and his son. Signed "Emile Laporte", the French artist Emile Laporte (1858-1907), and with the foundry stamp of Siot-Decauville.
France, late 19th century.

*Vercingetorix (ca 82-46 BC) was a Gallic King from Auvergne, who was head of the Gallic Revolt against the Romans in 53-52 BC (Wikipedia).

A variant of this sculpture is depicted in the following standard works on sculpture:
- Harold Berman, Bronze Sculptors & Founders 1800-1930, volume III, page 705
- Pierre Kjellberg, Bronzes of the 19th century, page 407.

With dark patina, in very good condition.
Presumably the sculpture of the son is missing an attribute in his left hand, but the axe in his right hand is still present.

Size: 43 x 30 x 22 cm.
Weight: approx. 8 kg.

Will be sent by registered mail.

    東西寄來..打開看是壞的,我該如何辦..?我有2個建議, 在台灣修理,費用大約USD$450-500, 另一個是寄回去還給原來的賣家,主要是寄送前的包裝沒有完善,裡面的東西震壞且螺絲掉落了..請告知我該如何處理..?
