This striking bronze sculpture, titled "Parrot Girl," is a testament to the artistry of French sculptor Paul Philippe. Measuring approximately 15 1/2 inches in height, this sculpture captures the essence of a young woman adorned in Middle Eastern attire, gracefully poised on one leg. She extends one arm upward, on which a parrot perches, creating a captivating and harmonious composition. The bronze figure is exquisitely hand-painted, adding depth and character to the artwork.
Resting on a circular mottled black marble base, this sculpture bears the marking 'Philippe,' affirming its authenticity and origin. Crafted in Europe, this work is certified pure bronze, created through the meticulous Lost Wax Process (Cire Perdue). This ancient technique allows for the transformation of a soft clay sculpture into a durable bronze piece while preserving even the most minute details of the artist's original vision. This dedication to quality, fidelity, and detail mirrors the practices of old-world masters and ensures that each sculpture is a faithful reproduction of the original work.
The Lost Wax Process has long been the preferred method for casting bronze sculptures destined for the world's finest museums, galleries, and premier collections. Whether recreating originals, reproductions, or sculptures inspired by paintings, this method is unparalleled in its ability to capture the essence of the original object. "Parrot Girl" invites viewers to appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship of Paul Philippe, showcasing the enduring appeal of bronze as a medium for artistic expression. Whether displayed in a private collection or a public setting, it serves as a testament to the dedication to quality that has made the Lost Wax Process the choice of discerning collectors worldwide.
