Georges Guiraud is a French sculptor and engraver of the 19th century. He was second second prize in medal engraving in 1923, first grand prize in 1926, then resident of the Villa Medici in Rome from 1927 to 1930. Georges Guiraud lived and worked for many years at the ancient city of artists in Paris, until its destruction.
In the second half of the 1950s, the Esso Company entrusted him with the creation of three figureheads for the oil companies Esso Paris, Esso Parentis and Esso Bourgogne: these are monumental statues in synthetic resin of high mechanical strength, of around five meters high by eight meters wide, capable of withstanding the pressures generated by the waves encountered by ocean-going vessels.
