Bronze marquis de sade

On Friday, December 2, 1814, at the Hospice de Charenton, Donatien Alphonse, François Marquis de Sade, died at the age of 74. Buried in Charenton, the body was exhumed a few years later, when the cemetery was moved. On this occasion, the young Doctor LJ Ramon, who had accompanied him in his last hours, had the Marquis's skull handed over for the purpose of studying it. Dr. Spurzheim, a disciple of Dr. Gall, father of phrenology, borrowed the skull and moulded it. The skull travelled to England, America and Germany to illustrate lectures on this topic. When Dr. Spurzheim died, the skull was gone. The only thing left is the moulding that is in the Museum of Man (musée de l'homme).

According to phrenologists, the skull of the Marquis de Sade "was in every respect similar to that of a father of the Church".
This bronze of the skull of the Marquis de Sade was made from authentic moulding. This work of art was performed by the Master founder of art Avangini in May 2012. Each bronze is signed with the initials of the Marquis de Sade.
They are numbered from 1 to 99.
As you will have understood, this numbered moulding is rare. However, of the 99 copies in this series, there are still a few.
