This is a beautifully detailed statue depicting the hero Perseus after he slew the Gorgon Medusa. Pegasus, the winged horse, was said to have sprung from Medusa’s neck when she was beheaded by Perseus. The head of Medusa hangs in front of Perseus and his shield rests on the ground against a rock near the horse's rear legs. Signed by Picault on the base and marked “ exhibition of fine arts.
We believe this statue is a close interpretation of an original sculpture made in 1888 by Émile Louis Picault (1833-1915) a French sculptor, well known for his allegorical works and mythological themes.
The lamp all in spelter, has been complemented by a black – gold lined interior shade by John Lewis, Oxford Street.
The lamp has been photographed on the attractive antique Georgian (C 1830) rosewood card table available in our online shop
