Bronze Dimensions with Marble Base: Height 15" x Width 21" Marble Dimensions: 11" 5.5" Height without base: 14 Weight :23 LBS Inventory : 81STE31414518. The Mounted Amazon Attacked by a Panther was the work of German sculptor Auguste Kiss. Caught in the midst of the attack, the figures convey the violence and emotional tension of the moment.
The Amazon was installed in 1837 at the steps of the newly built National Museum in Berlin, standing alone for several years until Albert Wolff completed a companion piece, The Lion Fighter. With the assistance of the German government, a new plaster cast was made from the original bronze and exhibited in Memorial Hall until 1909. The decision to commission only American art prompted the Art Association to present the Amazon as a gift to Harvard's Germanic Museum.
However, once construction began on the new building for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Art Association arranged to cast another copy so that it could sit across from The Lion Fighter. Virgin Islands, however, an additional charge may be required.
