Exquisite Bronze Indian Warrior with Eagle headdress and Eagle Wings. 

Our estimate is that this bronze was cast in the late 1800's using the lost wax technique.   The Warrior is mounted on a black marble base and total weight is 4 pounds and 7 ounces.  Letters imbedded on the rock, below the warrior appear to be "wiel" or something very simliar.  We believe this to be a foundry mark, but aren't certain.

The detail in this is superb in the wings, the head and headdress and throughout the piece including the small sword on his belt. 

These types of sculptures were an attractive subject to the Italians and the French who were becoming attractive to the Native American Indian and naturalistic subjects related to the Indian as well as animals in the late 1800's.  

Lost Wax Casting Process

The "Lost Wax" is the most precise metal casting technique in existence, ensuring accurate reproductions of the original sculpture and exquisite detail. All bronze pieces are cast from a wax model regardless of the original material the model was sculpted in usually in clay or wax. "Lost wax" casting method was founded thousands of years ago. Even though, modern methods and materials have improved the technique. It is still an extremely labor intensive and expensive process.   Please see our other Bronze figures by clicking on the link below:
