Swords into Plowshares Vintage USSR Soviet Art Deco Bronze Figurine
The original bronze sculpture of Sword Into Plowshares was presented to the United Nations in 1959 by the Government of the USSR, depicts an athletic man holding a hammer aloft in one hand and a sword in the other. He is captured pounding his sword into a plowshare, an act meant to symbolize man's desire to put an end to war and to convert the means of destruction into creative tools for the benefit of mankind. The fluid movement of the idealized male nude figure is striking. It is mounted on a black marble base. Every year the price for this sculpture should only increase in value. This figurine is a stylish acquisition for collectors.
Height: is 10-inches and 11-inches with the base Weight: is 7 pounds with the base. I would say the base is approximately 3 ½ Lbs and the sculpture is 3 ½ Lbs.
