The equestrian statuette is considered one of the most precious treasures of world art. It shows the remarkable European emperor with imperial orb, sword and crown of lilies. Originally part of the treasure belonging to the cathedral of Metz, today the world-famous sculpture stands as a national monument in the Louvre (Paris).
Art historians say it is a happy accident of history that this bronze figurine with its impressive iconographic representation and the finely-modelled face of the emperor has survived to this day.
You can now acquire this European artwork in the form of a unique collector's piece.
