Upon his head he wears a galea which was a soldiers helmet made of bronze. He wears a metal armor around his torso over the knee-length tunic. A paludamentum falls down his back, which is a cloak fastened to the shoulders usually worn by military commanders. At his feet are caligae which were heavy-soled sandals. His left hand holds a spear against the ground as he looks far off into the distance. The handmade bronze sculpture was molded using the ancient method of lost-wax casting and stained with a green patina finish for preservation. It is mounted upon a variegated black marble base with the artist Dalou’s signature. Aimé-Jules Dalou (31 December 1838, Paris – 15 April 1902) was a French sculptor, recognized as one of the most brilliant virtuosos of nineteenth-century France, admired for his perceptiveness, execution, and unpretentious realism.
