THE ITEM

This majestic pair of cast brass unicorns were crafted with stylised Art Deco detail. The clean and smooth surface of the brass presents a sleek, svelte form to the unicorns which rear up in a show of dominance. The form captured in these figurines are well proportioned, toned with gentle curves outlining the idea of musculature within each piece.

As visible from the seams in the base of the unicorns, these would have been produced by pouring molten brass into a mould. The joins have been expertly polished to appear seamless on the outside of the body, and details such as the horn and the mane have been expertly executed to show texture that contrasts with the polished body.
