A beautiful Brutalist style wall sculpture made by Walter de Buck in Belgium, circa 1960.
Made of high quality bronze patinated metal on a wooden panel. The metal sculpture is made in the iconic style by De Buck. The combination of materials make this piece suitable for any style of interior, adding a unique touch and personality to the decor. Made with a beautiful eye for detail and very appealing, mostly cubic shapes. The natural aging of the metal fits perfectly to this artwork.
This beautiful piece remains in good original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.
