Striding warrior, attributed to Willem Danielsz. van Tetrode, c. 1562 - c. 1567

bronze, h 39.5cm × w 25.5cm × d 19.5cm. More details

This figure’s muscular legs seem almost too heavy for the slender torso, and the arms are excessively long. The full moustache and luxurious hair fail to conceal the leanness of the face. The man is elderly. His identity remains a mystery. He once held a sword or a wand in his right hand. There is a little hole at the back of his head, which may have served to secure a crown.
