A great early Austrian bronze.
extremely well detailed Austrian boar is almost 112 years old and in perfect condition considering the age.
They engraved the date and a monogram,
probably referring to a successful hunter, who was honored with the statue. The
engraving says ‘28-III-1915 MD’.
The sculptor created perfectly the moment of
the animal on the run and the foundry captured the situation in solid bronze. The
bronze looks like a frozen snapshot. Every detail, every hair and the whole
atmosphere was meticulously elaborated by an anonymous artist. Most of the
sculptors in these days are forgotten and they did not make much money.
