Description:
Work: Funerary urn
            1840

Author:  Jean-Jacques Pradier (Geneva, 1790 -  Rueil, 1852)

Technique: Marble of Carrara

Presented at the Salon in 1840, the funeral urn never reveal the secret of the identity of his assignor. The urn is adorned with the luscious iconographic compositions. In the upper, on the lid of the urn the sculptor is placed a three star Cross, where on one side is the face of Christ, on the other side - the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove with outstretched wings. Two kneeling angels in long tunics pray with humility.
The style of Pradier is characterized by the exquisite sculpting of form and of each detail. The complicated marble compositions of Pradier are made with perfect precision, showing all the shine of the personages and of the marble material.
