"Vienna Bronze - Crocodile with Virgin - Tripartite - Bergmann Stamp"
Painted by hand and embellished with elaborate engravings, this bronze crocodile represents the artistic craftsmanship of the Vienna Bronze period. Small bronze figurines that were produced in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century often included little subtleties, which could only be exposed at a second glance. In the case of this crocodile figurine, the observer is offered the possibility of looking into the interior of the animal. The scaled back of this bronze animal sculpture can be taken off. There is a bronze virgin in the crocodile’s belly, who had seemingly been devoured mere moments before. The throat of the animal is still opened wide. The small erotic nude of the young woman can be taken out of the figurine. This tripartite erotic nude is equipped with the Bergmann stamp and is thus a part of the artistic legacy of the numerous Viennese bronze manufactories.
Since the end of the 19th century, miniature bronze figurines had been produced in the numerous bronze manufactories of Vienna that are nowadays summarised under the term Vienna Bronze. The motifs of those small sculptures come from quite a wide range: Realistic and abstract animal sculptures, erotic nudes and figurines of oriental people make up the bulk of the pieces of the Vienna Bronze period.
