A fine early Austrian bronze.

 

The statue depicts an Austrian mountaineer lifting his hat after reaching the summit.

 

We suggest enlarging the photos and seeing the excellent detail with which the foundry has created the statue. The mountaineer’s outfit is typical for that time, such as feather hat, loden jacket and leather pants (Lederhosen).

 

The sculptue is mounted on a black wooden pedestal which is inscribed:

 

ALPINE GESELLSCHAFT

(Alpine Society)

“RAXLER”*

12. Febr. 1901

 

 

*refers to a breathtaking mountain range south of Vienna called 'Rax' which is even nowadays popular destination.
