Description:
This is a fantastic pair of very large terra cotta dolphins that date to the second half of the twentieth century. These dolphin sculptures are most probably Italian in origin and are beautifully molded with well-defined scales and fins and, of course, their eyes and mouths. The dolphin was believed to be a mythical creature, king of all fish (we now now that dolphins are mammals, not fish) and imbued with such characteristics as playfulness, prayerfulness, intelligence, transcendence, friendship, contentment. The dolphin was also the symbol of the Prince Regent of France. These guys were modeled after the antique and would be appropriate for any design from 18th century to modern. The figures are in excellent condition with an invisible professional repair to the plateau tops.
