Antique and Vintage French Statue Product Details
44H x 14W x 11D
This awesome large antique French statue is a stunning piece for your home or to stand guard on your porch! Dating to around 1900 and made in France, the cream terra cotta statue portrays Saint Joan of Arc, known as the Maid of Orleans. A folk hero in France and a Roman Catholic saint, Saint Joan was born a peasant girl, but went on to lead the French to several victories under Divine guidance during the Hundred Years War in the 15th century. She holds her flag aloft, decorated with French fleur-de-lis heraldry. The fleur-de-lis or lily flower is a historical symbol associated with Christian French monarchs, adapted from its even older history as a religious symbol. The statue is elaborate in its detail, from the fringes on the flag, to the figure's eyes cast to heaven, to the painstaking details rendered on the armor and helmet and the draping on the textured textiles of the garments. What a noble figure she makes! The statue is set on an octagonal base. The total majestic size of this superb antique French statue of Saint Joan of Arc is 44 inches tall by 14 inches wide and 11 inches deep.
