This impressive and unusual fine bonze study is by the French sculptor Leon Mignon (1847 – 1898) and depicts a rural Mexican male figure wearing loose clothing and woven sombrero. It is very well modelled with good detail to the characterful face which is finished in gilt. The figure stands on a raised circular plinth which bears the signature L Mignon and has a Brussels foundry mark for R.G Debraze at the back. This piece is in good condition and has a dark brown patination to the plinth and in contrast, the figure is in dark green. Circa 1870
