A fine large bronzed terracotta bust of a bearded king. 20th century. Monogram of 'JH' verso. 

The figure is wearing a crown of oak leaves, likely symbolising that he is a Celtic or Druid king. The Druids frequently worshipped and practised their rites in oak groves. Mistletoe, probably the Druids’ most potent and magical plant, frequently grew on oak trees. Its presence was believed to indicate the hand of God having placed it there in a lightning strike. Ancient kings presented themselves as the personifications of these gods and wore crowns of oak leaves as a symbol of the god they represented as kings on Earth.

The whole piece boasts exceptional attention to detail and really does draw the eye. A great work of art.
