Kronos, Italy 18th century

Bronze, dark brown patina
Overall 16,5x12,5x9,5 cm Bronze 13,5x11,6x6,5 cm

The god Kronos is depicted in a standing position, holding with his right hand a scythe, symbol of life temporariness and time passing. This symbolism is reinforced by the hourglass held in his left hand. Another curious and rare element is a bird about to take flight from a shrub in the back – probably a further symbol of the volatility of human time.


Beautiful casting rich in detail and well chiseled, rare and intriguing subject.
