French Male Statue
I find this statue so charming. I've had him for awhile, but am rotating some new things in. I think he is made from spelter, but I'm no expert. It looks quite old. The base is wood and cracked from age. This is not a reproduction, it is old. I just don't know how old. It looks to be a tribute to man's triumph with a steam powered locomotive. The label says "La Vapeur" which loosely means 'steam' in French.
His arm is missing, there is a crack in the base (as shown) and the paint is chipped in places. Overall it's got lots of chippy goodness. Check out the photos and feel free to send any questions.
