Amazone au Javelot*
This is the smaller version of Pierre le Faguay’s famous Art Deco sculpture at around 30 cm high.
The slender and athletic girl is modelled with lovely flowing lines, the slight tilt of her head and the arch of her back contributing to the elegant look and impression of speed.
Cast at the Le Verrier foundry in Paris using their superior grade of art metal.
Signed with the pseudonym Fayral and mounted on a polished wedge-shaped slate base.
Early 1930’s and in very good condition with just a few very minor marks to the green patina.
