‘The Snake Charmer’ By Baron Charles Arthur Bourgeois (1838-1886)
Cast in finely sculpted bronze, which has acquired a fine patina; rising from a circular base, the young dancing Nubian, dressed in a loincloth, plays a woodwind instrument, thus charming the coiled snake. Signed by the artist, ‘A. Bourgeois Sculptr’, and the foundry ‘L. Marchand Edt’.
French, Circa 1880
