A rare bronze portrait plaque or plaquette dating from the 1920s by the highly accomplished Austrian medallist Franz Stiasny (1881-1941). The image is modeled in high relief with incredible detail and depicts the profile of the beloved Lord Jesus Christ crowned in thorns. Incised F. STIASNY in block lettering in the upper right corner. Over all condition is very good with a nice warm patina. It measures approximately 2 1/2" x 2 1/8' inches. Stiasny is very well known for his beautiful bronze plaquettes of composers, writers, and other important historical figures, but a very diligent internet search for another example of this particular work of art over the last decade has resulted in no other offering whatsoever.
