Description
 

We offer our life size one-of-a kind rendering of Cellini's Perseus slaying of Medusa created by the Paulingston Co. Every casting is finished differently by hand making it a unique piece in the edition.

Taken from Wikipedia " Benvenuto Cellini (3 November 1500 – 13 February 1571) was an Italian goldsmith, sculptor, painter, soldier and musician, who also wrote a famous autobiography. He was one of the most important artists of Mannerism.

Besides his works in gold and silver, Cellini executed sculptures of grander scale. The most distinguished of these is the bronze group of "Perseus holding the head of Medusa", a work (first suggested by Duke Cosimo I de Medici) now in the Loggia dei Lanzi at Florence, his attempt to surpass Michelangelo's David and Donatello's Judith and Holofernes. The casting of this work caused Cellini much trouble and anxiety, but it was hailed as a masterpiece as soon as it was completed. The original relief from the foot of the pedestal — Perseus and Andromeda — is in the Bargello, and replaced by a cast."

Mounted on marble, this monumental sculpture towers at a height of 48" inches plus Tall x 27" inches Wide x 29" inches long.
The bronze and marble base weighs approx. 175 lbs
