    Mediumbronze w/ dark-brown patina
    Year of Work1855
    SizeHeight 20.9 in. / Height 53 cm.

  2. This sculpture caught my eye because it is reminiscent of old greek sculptures, but it was relatively modern occurring in the last within the last 200 years.  The work was done by French artist Charles Gumery.  This work must have to some point been influenced by the Greek and Roman sculptors of the time.  This name of this work means "The Playing Faun" and it shows a Shepard playing with a lamb.
