This is a bronze replica honoring the French commanding martial giant Napoleon Bonaparte (15 August 1769 – 5 May 1821). As Napoleon I, he was Emperor of the French from 1804 to 1815. His legal reconstruction, the Napoleonic code, has been a major influence on many civil law administrations worldwide, but he is best remembered for the wars he led against a series of coalitions, the so-called Napoleonic Wars, during which he established dominion over much of Europe and sought to spread revolutionary ideals. The beholder witnesses him seated upon a cannon, a forlorn look wears his face downward, his fanning fortune after all, finally defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in June of 1815. The sculpture was cast using the archaic method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for perpetuation. It is mounted upon a variegated black marble base with the artist Aldo Vitaleh`s signature.
