"Large Sculpture Bronze - The Walking Man - 1900, signed A. Rodin"
The impressive large sculpture „The Walking Man“ about 1900 by Auguste Rodin was emerged for years in different variants and productions. The missing arms and legs are typical for a torso-statue. At renaissance it was a very significant representation. Art works from ancient times were rediscovered and inspired the artists. The torso gained an own art form in the plastic arts motivated by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. The full-sized statue is made of 100 percent bronze and shows the body of a man, who is walking in the moment. The sculpture is guaranteed stable, because the bronze is fixed on a flat base.
