Item No. 1189Faunesse With Child And Bacchus, Late 19th century bronze group Signed Clodion
Large French bronze sculpture representing a faunesse (female faun) holding her baby on her knees, and Bacchus playing at their feet, a well known model by Clodion. The faun and her child are girded with vine leaves and the child holds out a cup to Bacchus. In exchange, Bacchus lying on a bed of vine branches gives him a bunch of grapes. The thyrsus, symbol of Bacchus, lies on the bed of foliage. All the attributes of Bacchus are present in this magnificent composition by Clodion, whose quality of carving is matched only by the depth of its patina. A cherry red marble base supports this remarkable mythological group.
