Rare Gallic warriors in silver plated bronze, signed E Guillemin (Emile, 1841-1907).
Very nice work in the details that makes both characters alive: finesse of the moustaches and plaits, folds of the clothes.
In the 19th century, a strong nationalist sentiment pushed the French to reclaim their Gallic past, the Franks and Clovis being claimed by the Royalty.
This is the beginning of excavations, as in Alesia, and artists of the time are inspired by these discoveries to recreate armaments, clothing and above all give a "physical" touch to the valiant warriors of Gaul: moustache, long braided hair..
