    HAGENAUER (after), great water carrier, “giraffe woman”
    Bronze with double black and gold patina pierced for electrification, 1970s
    Dimensions: 163.5 cm
    Life-size bronze of an African woman carrying water. The woman presents a stylized body with slender proportions exuding great elegance. The limbs are elongated, the back curved to reveal and highlight the feminine attributes. A slight movement appears in the legs, avoiding the static effect and animating the figure. Facial features are stylized and simplified. The body is in bronze with a dark, black patina, which highlights the line and curves. Only the thigh, neck, earrings and vase jewelry are gold, which highlights the curves and highlights the body.
    This work is characteristic of the style of Karl Hagenauer (1898-1956), a famous Austrian designer, specialized in the production of metal and wooden objects, recognized for his modern and stylized works. This model dates from the 1970s, when numerous reissues of Hagenauer classics were made. We also present in our gallery a pair of bronze statuettes of the same model but in a smaller format.
