Listing #: 501270936
Presumably made with the lost-wax technique, and then filled for rigidity - probably with plaster, a common old technology.
Made of a high-percentage copper alloy. I have filed away under a foot to show the pure copper beneath the patina.
Another photo shows the only marking: an "X" on the hand.
Each hand also shows a small bore-hole drilled. We have used this to insert a pin to secure the tea-light.

We sold our holiday home/church which gave her a suitable ambiance.

Height to top of wings 52 cm
Width between wings outer edge 40 cm
From top of wing to heels 44 cm

Weight 15 kg. Pickup rural Henderson Valley OR discuss our delivering within metropolitan Auckland. Will not risk couriers.
