Omschrijving
Van een model van Giambologna, Maestosa Goddess Fortuna - H 230 cm - Brons, verloren was gieten - Tweede helft 20e eeuw
Italië, Venetië

Outstanding and fascinating bronze statue, lost wax casting, depicting the goddess Fortuna with a cornucopia: a combination of the Roman goddess Opi and the Amaltea goat horn; its appearance is that of a girl, who dispenses wealth, letting it fall from a large horn-shaped container. For some time, it has decorated the Venice casino, the oldest in the world, inaugurated in 1638. Obviously, considering its lure for good luck, this was the perfect place for this statue. It was later moved to a private residence (Venice) where it was no longer visible to the public. It lends itself easily as a piece of furniture, it will certainly not go unnoticed. Remarkable workmanship and quality, please note the admirable care and precision of details and anatomy of the Goddess. One of a kind lot, especially seen its size, completely original and intact. Magnificent metal patina, that highlights its originality and age. Very hard to find in this size, exclusive work. In short, a unique piece of important historical and artistic value. For true lovers of the genre. In very good overall condition, intact. If shipped, it will be delivered in a wooden crate with appropriate packaging. Safe and tracked worldwide shipping, at low rates. Dimensions: max. height 230 cm - max. width 55 cm - max. depth 100 cm - base diameter 50 cm; weight 97 kg. (The man photographed together with the statue is 190 cm tall).
