A pair of classic "Blackamoor" statues were cast in genuine bronze about 50 years ago. These vintage statues are a true left and right pair.
Life size and life weight, they are about 165 lbs. each. The two toned patina is in very fine condition with minor wear as shown.
In Renaissance Italy, aristocratic families had "Blackamoor" slaves, showing they had such great wealth that these special slaves had no work other than looking good, standing at attention and holding torches as guests were received. They were chosen for their handsome physiques.
When slavery ended, statues of Blackamoors served the same traditional function in Palazzos.
Measurements of these works of art are 28" across, 21" deep and 94" tall.
