Antique Grand Tour bronze of Capitoline Wolf with Romulus and Remus
Antique Grand Tour bronze of she Wolf with Romulus and Remus. This bronze could also be a reference to the Capitoline wolf at Siena Duomo. According to a legend, Siena was founded by Senius and Aschius, two sons of Remus. They fled Rome after their father was murdered by Romulus, taking the stature of the She-wolf to Siena, which became the symbol of the town. A very fine quality bronze with lovely rich green and brown patination and the modelling with superb definition. The two brothers below the wolf are also well modelled. There is pleasing bleeding of the patination where one would expect, on the wolf's flanks, through handling, giving a really excellent colour. Extremely finely cast, set on a piece of black marble. Italian circa 1860 17cm Long by 8.5cm deep and 13.5cm high
