  1. I would have thought a rather tricky pose. But beautifully done despite the closed eyes.

    1. I thought so too, and was hoping you'd confirm by suspicion. Thanks!

    2. I am, naturally hoping to get to try this one. So similar to the work of Jacques Lalaing.

  2. The model seems to be imitating the pose of the sculpture Hercules the Archer by Antoine Bourdelle, made in 1909. Photos of the original model (a military man) were posted before on this blog.

  3. L'Archer Armenien.
    Nous avons beaucoup d'armeniens en France. C'est un peuple admirable.
