Roman Gladiator by Schmidt-Felling*
Imposing bronze statue of a naked but helmeted young Roman soldier, modelled having just released an arrow from the bow he is holding.
His gaze is following the flight of the arrow as he remains perfectly still. The posture is strong and confident and his body slim and muscular, making this an eye-catching sculpture.
Good all over dark brown patination and signed on the circular base by the artist Schmidt-Felling.
Dating from around 1925 or just a little later, with the height to the top of the bow approximately 66 cm.
