"Sagittarius," Rare, High Style Art Deco Bronze Bas Relief by Paul Manship

About

Boldly and brilliantly sculpted in high relief, this depiction of the classic symbol of the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius -- a centaur with drawn bow and flying arrow -- was sculpted by Paul Manship, no doubt the most important American sculptor creating high style Art Deco works in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. This bronze dish is one of a set of 12 sculpted in 1946, and is signed and dated. Manship is perhaps best known for his magisterial "Prometheus" sculpture at Rockefeller Center in New York, which now presides over the skating rink in winter time. The sculptor also created other works for Rockefeller Center, as well as major pieces for the Bronx Zoo and Central Park Zoo; the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland; and Cochran Park in St. Paul, Minnesota.
