in Cold Cast Bronze of TWO Italian Greyhound Sculptures
by Pierre Jules Mene 1810 - 1871
are two of the most beautiful Italian Greyhound
sculptures in Iggydom. These are NOT Greyhounds...but
definite IGs. The sculptor was Pierre Jules Mene.
Mene was born in Paris in 1810 and died there
in 1871. Mene was the most successful and prolific
animalier of his day. He won four medals at the
Paris Salon and at major exhibitions, receiving
the Cross of the Le`gion d`Honneur in 1861. His
bronzes possessed a warm, friendly style of romanticism.
Mene developed his own unique style of naturalism
and became the most important and influential
animalier of his time.
sculptures are reproductions of original Mene
works. They were made with cold cast bronze and
antiqued by hand. The definition and intricate
details of this piece are simply beautiful. The
special production process of this piece, originated
in Great Britain, uses actual bronze powder mixed
in the cold cast resin in order to ensure a richer,
more life-like presentation. The piece is a truly
artistic and lively representation of the breed.
The polished elegance and refined beauty delivers
the essence of Art Deco and provides a captivating
focal point for your decor.
people do not collect metal canine sculptures
because they seem "cold" and far removed
from the warmth and vitality of a living dog.
The bronze in these sculptures is softened by
the resin...and the effect is utterly breathtaking.
These are such incredibly lovely Italian Greyhound
sculptures that they would enhance the beauty
of almost any home!
