THIS IS AN EXACT RESIN COPY OF THE ORIGINAL - WITH BRONZE LIKE FINISH.... The original bronze statue of L'Acrobat conceived in 1928 and cast during his lifetime (before 1935), fuses the abstract refinements of Brancusi and Nadelman with the realism of Degas. There seems to be a perfect balance between the swelling forms and vertical forces of gravity that anchor the piece to the base. L'Acrobat aspires to formal perfection in depicting an inverted athlete in the same manner as a similar work of Greek sculpture like the Discobolus
