After ANTOINE COYSEVOX, Important Pair of Cast Iron Statues

Ref: B-70-0292
(French, 1640-1720)

This antique pair of figures depict Flora, the goddess of flowers of spring, fashioned with a floral crown, holding a garland; and Hamadryad, the goddess of nature, presiding over groves and forests, shown wearing a laurel wreath with a putto holding a floral wreath. There are several similar versions of these figures in limestone in the Louvre. Cast mark:  Coysevox, 1709

These large scale figures once graced a chateau garden near Leon. Most likely at the entrance to a grand walk or stairway, mounted above the viewer on a stone plinth. These are heavy cast iron and have been waxed for use indoors, but would survive any climate in a garden setting.
