The Dying Slave Statue
By Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), Louvre Museum, Paris.

One of the sculptor Michelangelo's greatest creations, this classic statue expresses the soul's struggle for freedom. Magnificently sculpted for the tomb of Pope Julius II in 1513. The project was never completed. In 1546, Michelangelo gave this statue along with its companion statue, the Rebellious Slave, to Ruberto Strozzi, who in turn presented them to King Francois I of France. In 1794, the Rebellious and Dying Slaves were purchased for the French state, and have been preserved in the Musée du Louvre ever since. Our nearly four-foot-tall replica is cast directly from the 19th century museum reduction in quality designer resin. A distinctive addition to your home or garden gallery, our exclusive work echoes the fine sculptures seen on European estates.
