This gorgeous bronze by early 20th century French artist Raphael X captures a mariner battling his ship through stormy seas. You can almost taste the salt from the waves breaking over the ship's wooden deck. The sculpture boasts terrific detail and a patina finish applied under very high heat so that it has permanently fused into the bronze itself. This is a top quality maritime bronze that will endure to be treasured by generations of seafarers to come.
The artwork is mounted onto a marble base, stands 26" tall, and is signed "Raphael X" in the bronze.
