Rare French Carved Stone Statue of Youthful Dionysus
From a magnificent Chateau in the Loire Valley of France, this beautifully-carved 18th century statue of Dionysus as a youth will delight you. Holding a cup aloft and grasping a bottle of wine, he stands in an insouciant pose with a mischievous grin on his face. Perfect for any wine-lover or at the entrance to your vineyard. The statue comes with a 28" hi x 12" square cast stone pedestal of a late 20th C vintage that is well-matched to the figure both style- and color-wise (seen in photo #8). Wonderful condition, but there is a small area of flaking to the left leg.
France, CA 1780.
