The figure is a true to original reproduction made of a bronze-imitation-cast (cast stone).
The original was created by Demetre Chiparu, a Romanian artist who emigrated to Paris in the 1920s.
It is 32 cm (12.6 inches), the base measures 14cm x 6cm (5.5 x 2.3 inches).
It parallels a metal figure both in its weight (900 g with base = approx. 2 pounds) and its look which was realized by the handpainted metallic lack.
The same finish was used for the "marble"-base.
As the hands and face were originally made of ivory, they have been painted accordingly.
Please be careful when unpacking the figure!
