4 000€
Current stock : 0

Two 18th century mythological sculptures in bronze with brown patina forming a pendant. One represents Pan, god protector of the shepherds in contraposto on a tree trunk in the antique style and the other one, a vestal draped with a stola and a palla with an embroidered frieze in its lower part. The two figures rest on a circular counter base in white Carrara marble enhanced by a frieze of golden pearl thread. The figure of Pan carries a golden flower stem with a still closed bud. The vestal is carrying a ewer from which a stem with a blooming flower is coming out. A circular base in blue Turquin marble, decorated with a heart-shaped motif much appreciated under Louis XVI, raises each of the two statuettes.

The Louis XVI style is distinguished here by its taste for Greco-Roman Antiquity and its mythological themes imbued with moral values dear to the kingdom. It precedes the Directoire style, which will pay particular homage to Ancient Egypt.
