Paul Richer Sculpture of an Athletic Weightlifter in Bronze

6300 USD
$6,300.00

Description:

Cast of richly-patinated dark chocolate brown bronze and signed by the artist "Paul Richer", this athletic sculpture depicts a weightlifter lifting a heavy weight in his outstretched arm, and draws audience attention not only by its ideal anatomical proportions and perfection of the male body, but also by the unusual rendering: the figure of an athlete is in a moving state with respect to the base, and the outstretched arm is visibly connected to the forearm by a detachable stud in the biceps area. The reason being that it is a prototype, or the very first sculpture, made specifically for its further replication by a foundry.
