Statue of Ape with Skull

statue ape with skull

 

Bronze painted white metal monkey figure contemplating a human skull that he is holding; monkey sits upon a stack of books with one of them entitled “Darwin”, marked Esco Products, 13¼” H.

 

This Esco Products statuette was designed to mimic the infamous bronze, Affe mit Schadel (Ape with Skull), created by 19th century German sculptor Hugo Rheinhold.  In 1893, the original work was exhibited at the Great Berlin Art Exhibition.

 

Our version was replicated by Esco Products, Inc., a company started in the 1970’s that produced a range of popular statues.  This unusual  statuette would make for a great conversation piece and would fit into any décor.
