‘Trophée’ by Le Faguays*
The iconic Art Deco male figural group titled ‘Trophée’ sculpted by Pierre Le Faguays circa 1925. This was one year after Paris hosted its second Olympic Games.
Depicting three super-fit male athletes with the victor supported high on the shoulders of the runners up. He’s wearing a laurel wreath around his head and in his raised right arm proudly holds aloft a palm frond as a symbol of peace, triumph and eternal life – the palm leaf being one of the most common attributes of victory in ancient Greece.
Cast in high quality art metal at the Le Verrier foundry in Paris, and with a pleasing bronzy-green patina.
Set on a six-sided black marble base bearing the signature of the sculptor and with a height of approximately 64 cm. The base is 34 cm wide and 14 deep.
In good condition with just a little loss to the patina on a couple of the high points.
