Antiques, Fine Art & Collectibles. Vintage Clay Sculpture Acrobat Trapeze Art Terracotta Working Study Zuniga Style. DESCRIPTION Vintage clay sculpture of an acrobat, trapeze artist or clown. Sculpted by hand from terracotta clay this piece was most likely a study for a bronze casting. Not signed anywhere this piece is an accomplished sculpture which captures a trapeze artist or acrobat as they limber up.
The relaxed expression on the face suggests that they are unaware that they are being observed. The relaxed pose they are in shows strength and flexibility as they casually stretch their long limbs which is further exaggerated by the large neck.
