"Saint Pierre Trônant, Second Half Of The 19th Century"Saint Peter enthroned, second half of the 19th century
Very pretty bronze statue representing Saint-Pierre on his throne, haloed, holding in his left hand the keys of paradise and blessing the faithful with the right hand. Throne with scrolled armrests, sides carved with shields and palmettes.
This statuette is a reduction of the famous bronze effigy of the apostle at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, long attributed to Arnolfo di Cambio (1245-1302 / 10). The Roman work, with its throne, was often reproduced by the makers of religious statuary in the second half of the 19th century.
