Demetre Chiparus Javelin Thrower*
Rarely seen Art Deco bronze sculpture of a male javelin thrower by Demetre Chiparus.
Wearing a graduated length skirt of strapping at front and back suspended from an ornate low slung belt, the athletic individual is leaning back and bracing himself, about to launch his long spear high in the sky.
Chiparus has modelled his subject superbly and the detail is quite wonderful. The man’s handsome features, his hair and the bend of his muscular body all contribute to the sheer quality of this fine piece.
Dating from the late twenties to early thirties and In very good condition, with a height to the top of the javelin of just over 79 cm.
