have a set of 2
bronze statues since about 14 years that have been left to us in a
succession lot. This one that I call "Don Juan", that was stored in 3
broken pieces in a humid
basement since we have it, but recently fixed with epoxy glue,
and another one that does decorate the living room that I now call Don
Caesar (detail in this site section).
Why the (?) on them, is that they haven't been officially identified as
beeing Don Caesar and Don Juan. There names on the bases seems to have
been volontary removed (erased) as they are barely visible now and I doubt that
they have weared out as other base details are excellent. I've suspected that the maker have used the same
molded base use for the Don Juan and Don Caeser set, to create
these 2 medieval caracters but I may be wrong. Internet researches haven't been
successfull to identify them besides that there are pairs of statues
of "real" Don Juan and Don Caesar using this base's shape and design with there un-erased names on them.
According to some sources, they could be from the 19th century but
again, nothing concluding that proves this. If anyone knows about
these, informations would be apreciated.
to them have been done using wood stud engraved to fit inner part of
legs and arm, and then glued with Epoxy glue. It's not a perfect job, I
know but was done with what I had to have this statue reborn finally
after a 14 years storage. The hand repair have moved later due to
flag's weight. I have to keep the flag removed for now. A real
soldering job would be great to it.
