DESCRIPTION: Here is a really fine depiction in genuine bronze art-deco sculpture of a Walkürie or, as some would call her, an Amazon. In any case, she fits either description. At the same time such art was employed in Germany, it stood out in Mussolini's Fascist Italy, as well. The theme of the warrior woman of legend is replete in the sagas of three culture groups: German, Italian, and French. The sculpture is signed 'Pierre le Faguays.' This artist, Le Faguays, was a prolific and versatile avant-garde French sculptor whose works greatly influenced the styles of the 1920s and early 1930s. The piece measures over 20 inches high from the bottom of the base to the top of the head. The distance from the tip of the shield to the point of the sword is over 20 inches. The base is 3 inches high at its tallest point. We lean toward Walkürie rather than Amazon because of the structure of the sword. It is definitely Teutonic. The patina is wonderful and the action of the bronze is both dramatic and anatomically correct. This is one great sculpture that would certainly grace a collection that is inclusive of cultural items. We don't know the age of this bronze, but it certainly has the feel of the mythos of the "heroic age" (Enormenzeif), a time when heroism ruled and there was no time for Belanglosen: Inconsequentials.

This remarkable Art Deco bronze figure was made by the French artist and sculptor Pierre le Faguays, who lived from 1892 to 1935. He was a well-known artist in the epoch of Art Deco and made several attractive sculptures and figures of nude females. He was inspired by ancient and mythological topics, as seen on this beautiful bronze. Female warriors have been an erotic ideal of men throughout the years. An Amazon combines beauty and femininity with power and strength. This mythological figure enchants not by its innocence, but by its dangerous radiance and energy.
