Sculpted in France in the early 1900s, this greyhound statue is a must have for any dog lover. Greyhounds are known for being playful, affectionate, and alert dogs. Here, we see the dog sitting attentively, as if waiting for a command from its owner. The anatomical details depicted in the collared dog are highly realistic; you can see each part of the musculature and skeleton in the dog.
Terra cotta is a type of unglazed ceramic that has been used in art and architecture since 3000 BC. Terra cotta is far more flexible than other sculpting materials, such as bronze. This allows the artist to produce highly detailed pieces in a fraction of the time.
This antique French terra cotta greyhound can be placed as a decorative accessory in a garden or just about any room of the house.
CONDITION: Good overall condition with small loss to one ear. Old surface buildup from the elements, and some small white spots to left side as seen in photos. We would recommend bringing it indoors during the winter months.
