"Art Nouveau Bronze Character Head - Faunus - after Jean Carries"
This exclusive Art Nouveau bronze character head was made by Jean-Joseph Marie Carries in 1885 and allegorizes a sleeping Faunus. The sculpture is made with high artistical detail, for example the beard, the ears and the wrinkles in the faunus' face seem very natural. The impressive Art Nouveau bronze of the sleeping faunus will be an enrichment for each collection. The mythic piece of art consists of 100% bronze and is signed by its sculptor Carries on the reverse side.
As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

The sculptor of this beautiful mythic bronze Jean-Joseph Marie Carries is one of the co-founders of Art Nouveau. The artist was born in 1855 in Lyon and was put in an orphanage when he was six. He began working in a sculptor's studio creating religious images at the age of thirteen and later studied in Paris at the famous "Ecole des Beaux-Artes". His first exhibition was at the "Salon de Paris" in Paris. France honoured him and his work with the National Order of Merit. Jean-Joseph Marie Carries died in 1897 because of meningitis at the age of 39. His body was buried at the cemetery "Pere Lachaise".
