A Grand Tour late 19th century Italian serpentine figure of 'The Dying Gaul' on integral oval base, after the antique - ADDITIONAL IMAGES CAN BE VIEWED BELOW:

The Dying Gaul or Dying Gladiator is depicted in his final moments next to his shield and sword, his face in pain with a fatal wound to his torso.

The original marble figure which is found in the Capitoline Museum in Rome is a Roman copy of a Greek sculpture thought to have been in bronze.

The photographs show old fractures to his neck, torso and base although it is quite common to find fractures on a piece of this size, age and of this medium and this is reflected in the price.
