Napoleon as Caesar, a bust, after the antique marble by Canova, 1804.
A Basalt black bust, with antique gilt crown, and lettering.
In 1802 Napoleon brought the finest Italian neoclassical sculptor, Antonio Canova, to Paris to do a series of sculptures of Napoleon.
After Napoleon saw one of the pieces, a marble relief with him wearing a laurel crown, he commissioned this large version.
As a standard these large busts are made lighter in weight and not with a solid core, they are still substantial, but manageable, if you require more weight, please inform at time of ordering.
Our sculpture is produced by a unique and proprietary dry casting process. They are made of white Carrara marble and over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural marble which gives it a look and feel of natural marble. They are finished by hand.
