X-Rare Greek Bronze Geometric Votive Standing Warrior: Ex Waltz

This extremely rare and intact Greek bronze warrior dates to the Geometric Period, circa late 8th-7th century B.C., and is approximately 3.9 inches high.  This piece has a beautiful light blue patina with dark brown/green highlights, and was a votive figurine that was used to promote fertility and strength, as this is likely a sacred warrior.  "This piece also has a bent lower right leg, and was done so intentionally, so the votive warrior spirit would not leave the shrine it was devoted to.  An extremely rare Greek bronze with only a few recorded examples."  Ex: M. Waltz collection, Germany, circa 1960's-2000's.   $12,875.00.
