Acrobat Lamp

2.26.Padua, first half of 16th century.  Poured bronze, lost wax technique, traces of dark green patina, 17 cm (7 inches) tall.   The bronze represents a virile, bearded figure with high cheekbones and a slightly flattened nose in a crouched pose, with a circular hole on his back followed by a second holethat creates the spout of the lamp by virtue of the soles of the feet being nest to eachother.

The figure is fixed to the base with a circular linchpin, with the knees on a tripod modelled into wide (acanthus) leaves terminating in 3 lion's feet...(the rest of the text refers to a related piece but not to this bronze.)
