This bronze head is one of the famous character heads of the German-Austrian sculptor Franz Xaver Messerschmidt. The wrinkled face with large, front-facing eyes is an extraordinary eye-catcher and a high quality product for lovers of original art castings. The grotesquely exaggerated facial features of Messerschmidt’s character heads are distinctive. The bust is signed with “X. Messerschmidt” and suited both indoors and outdoors.

Franz Xaver Messerschmidt (1736-1783) was a German-Austrian sculptor whose works are located between baroque and classicism. He was most famous for his "character heads", a collection of busts with faces contorted in extreme facial expressions. Messerschmidt himself called this collection "heads". Observing the resulting facial expressions in a mirror, Messerschmidt then set about recording them in marble and bronze. His intention was to represent the 64 “canonical grimaces” of the human face using himself as a template.
