An exquisite Art Deco bronze model of Diana the Huntress circa the 1930s, it is a sleek and minimalist depiction of the goddess raising her bow with her sights set on a distant target. It is finished in a fine dark green patination under beeswax and is raised over a black marble base. It exhibits crisp chiseling and finishing throughout.

Original patina, carefully cleaned and waxed, remaining in a fine ready-to-place condition. Bow has tiny nylon spacer between hand and bow to ensure tight fit. Diana's withdrawn arm had a slight gap in the casting seam that we tightened in-house - this should remain healed indefinitely as long as it is not handled or placed under pressure.
