Sculptures possess an extraordinary ability to communicate stories, encapsulating an artist's perception of life and translating it into a tangible form. We are pleased to present a highly sought after, average-sized Themis sculpture, hand-painted by Mayer Nicolas, a maestro of the genre of allegorical sculpture. This size category is beloved by collectors and art lovers, appealing for its versatility and ability to complement a variety of spaces without dominating them.

Mayer Nicolas's work is renowned for its exquisite quality of execution, and this Themis sculpture is no different. The attention to detail stands out in every aspect of the piece, from the intricately sketched facial expressions to the meticulously-crafted mantle. Every fold on the mantle is captured with precision, infusing the sculpture with a sense of dynamism and majesty befitting the Greek goddess of justice.

Further enhancing the visual appeal of the piece is its vivid, hand-painted finish. The technique adds a vibrant, decorative effect to the sculpture, heightening its visual appeal while maintaining the integrity of the artistic concept. The blend of traditional sculpting techniques and craft of hand-painting, make this Themis sculpture a standout representation of Mayer Nicolas’s artistic prowess.

Born and raised in Paris, Mayer Nicolas (active in the late 19th Century until 1910) was a French sculptor deeply ingrained in the Parisian art scene. He studied under the tutelage of Cordier and since 1885, made his presence felt at the Paris Salon with his consistent participation. He was also an honorary member of the Academy of Painting and Sculpture in Paris, a testament to his skills and contributions to the world of art.
