Bronze male Art Deco Warrior statue by Kowatz

Item #1678

Being offered is a wonderful statue of a warrior with shield and sword. Appears to have been won in a "challenge" or given as gift to someone named Bernard Delbecque, French or Belgian (bronze plaque on the front). The statue is artist signed by Kowatz, a sculptor from the Art Deco period who was known in France. The figure is certainly in the style depicting the figural male athletes and or warrior figures that might have been done between the two world wars and the European Olympics. This was a very prolific time for muscular men of mythic proportions. The piece sits boldly on a an original black Belgian marble base and is in excellent original condition. Artist paid great attention to the detail: please look at the feet and hands.
