Object Description

Pair of patinated bronze Native American figures after Kauba
Austrian, Early 20th Century
Brave figure: Height 31cm, width 16cm, depth 19cm
Chieftain figure: Height 28cm, width 16cm, depth 14cm

This pair of cold-painted and patinated bronze figures were made by Aldonzo Titze, cast from models by Carl Kauba (1865-1922), who was a removed Austrian artist particularly known for his patinated bronze depictions of the Wild West.

The bronzes portray a pair of Native Americans, each one standing on a rough-hewn deep red marble base.

The first figure portrays a Native American warrior, called a brave. Leaning forward his mouth is open as if he is shouting. A small feather headdress ornaments the figure’s head. Vibrant red frills are decorating parts of the trousers and shirt, an animal fur boa, as well as a yellow, blue, and white scarf covering his body.

The chieftain who is portrayed in the second figure is wearing traditional Native American clothing and, on his head, rests a stunning feather headdress. Yellow, green, and red details accentuate the different elements of the headdress. His posture suggests he is attempting to listen to something, perhaps to the male from the first figure. The underside of one of his shoes is stamped with a circled ‘AT’ foundry mark.

A complex manufacturing technique was used to manufacture this superb pair of patinated bronze figures, and its design makes them a desirable addition to the appropriate interior setting.
