Arent van Bolten - Bronze Statue

This bronze statue dated between 1610 - 30 was made from the grotesque beasts in Bolten's artwork.

Other examples of these bronze grotesque monsters can be found here and here. If anyone can find examples of these that are larger than thumbnail sized, please tell me. Click here to see another photograph of the statue from above.

Below are examples of the grotesque beasts the statues are based on.

More can be seen here and here.
