Offered here a superb rare and extremely impressive large Capodimonte figure group named
produced by the hugely talented and extremely popular artist Tiziano Galli c.1960's
Crafted in porcelain this figure group depictsSpartacus fighting a raging lion!!
Spartacus (about 109 BC - Lucania , 71 BC ) was a gladiator trace who led a revolt of slaves , the most challenging of the servile wars that Rome had to face: it is for this reason nicknamed "the slave who challenged the empire"
This is an outstanding work by Galli. Simply incredible. The pictures speak for themselves.
It's a huge piece measuring an impressive 15.5" tall and 12" wide.
There are some condition issues. Spartacus is missing his sword blade and is missing three fingers. The lion is missing two claws and there appears to have been some restoration to his feathers (picture 15).
Despite these issues this piece is outstanding! One of the best Capodimonte examples I've sold for a long time.
