Bronze Art for the Rug Lover

Bronze Art by Franz Bergman seen on the internet:

H3419-L164450652

H3419-L164450655H3419-L164450658H3419-L164450659

Cute eh?

Shall we conclude that he loved rugs as well?

These are cold-painted bronzes which were first cast in the foundry  and then decorated in several layers with so-called dust paint; the know-how for the mix of this kind of paint has been lost….

So much to learn about!
