An important pair of Sculptures "Shield Warriors" in Hammered wrought iron and Rock Crystal by Sylvain Subervie. Signed and numbered. Subervie created the statues in 2006 directly after completing a chess board in rock crystal and hammered wrought iron. Subervie has created this piece and the others preceding to express a preoccupation with combating war. The brutal beauty of the work directly inspired by his experience of Madagascar where he lives is a contribution to finding the value of life. These shield warriors are part of a monumental art project: the Army of Shield Warriors that will be reunited for a major event in the future. The first important event will take place in Antibes, France during the major yachting event 'Les Voiles D'Antibes" starting May 30, 2012 with 50 warriors on the ramparts of the city.
