"Art Nouveau Bronze Catapult, sign. W. R. Dick"
"Slingboy" or also known as "The Catapult" is a sculpture that was originally created by the Scottish sculptor William Reid Dick, who was born in 1879 in Glasgow and died in 1961 in London, England. The bronze sculpture that is known under two different names is showing a young, nude male who is aiming his catapult at a target. Slingboy is an attractive Art Nouveau exhibit that was made during the early 1920th century. The sculpture impresses its viewers, due to the noble material as well as the filigree and very detailed surface of the male nude. “The Catapult” is standing with a turned hip on top of a solid base made of marble and was perfected by the signature of the artist Stevens.
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.
