Life-Size Cast Stone Statue of a Stork on Tortoise
This statue is simply wonderful. Four feet tall, it depicts a life-size stork standing on the back of a tortoise and is modeled after the original 19th C miniature bronze by the famous French sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye, known as the "Michaelangelo of the Menagerie". In cast stone with chippy old white-over cream paint, it will make a unique and commanding focal point inside or in a garden. Minor restoration to one leg and beak of stork are invisible.
France, CA 1930.
