EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable Sword Hilt, created in 1881-82 by the talented French artists Albert Ernest Carrier de Belleuse and Lucien Falize. The hilt depicts an awe-inspiring scene of Archangel Michael valiantly vanquishing Satan, symbolizing the eternal battle between good and evil. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this antique masterpiece is made of bronze adorned with intricate gilding in gold color. The close-up shot beautifully captures the exquisite craftsmanship and decorative elements that make this sword hilt truly exceptional. As a significant piece of heritage art from 19th century France, it reflects the rich history and religious symbolism prevalent during that era. The collaboration between Carrier de Belleuse and Falize resulted in a fusion of their artistic styles, creating a harmonious blend of beauty and meaning. Currently housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this sword hilt stands as a testament to both military prowess and spiritual devotion. Its presence evokes contemplation on humanity's ongoing struggle against temptation and our innate desire for righteousness. The photograph does justice to this extraordinary object by highlighting its golden hues against a contrasting background. It invites viewers to appreciate not only its aesthetic appeal but also its historical significance within French culture.
