This allegory of flight carries the French motto "We have the wings to fly over mountain and valley." A muscular semi-nude guardian angel stands atop symbols of aviation including propeller, wings and pistons, foreshadowing the future in this bronze statue. Sculptor Emile Louis Picault (1833-1915) worked tirelessly producing approximately one thousand exciting bronze sculptures in his lifetime. Our Design Toscano exclusive high quality lost wax bronze sculpture is hand rubbed in a multidimensional sepia patina finish and set atop a solid black marble base. The statue is individually cast in the traditional lost wax method, which highlights the sculptural uniqueness and guarantees heirloom quality. Color patina is applied by hand one piece at a time, tone may vary slightly.
