Faguays Wheel Man*
Powerful patinated bronze sculpture by Pierre Le Faguays titled “Wheel Man” and made around 1925.
The young man is seen straining with all his might to move a large, heavy wheel up an incline. He has muscles that most men (and some women for that matter) can only dream of.
This is a strong Art Deco piece in a good size – you need to be strong to lift it as it’s very heavy ! Signed in the bronze and with impressed foundry mark.
The separate wooden base is not original, having been made for a previous owner, and is optional at no extra cost. Length of the actual bronze is 52 cm and height 38 cm.
