Description: Extremely expressive and dynamic bronze figure of a captivated barbarian. The tied up arms are stretched far out, the head with the stretched neck is extremely turned sideways. Virtually writhed in pain the legs are spread apart and the feet are turned upwards. The naked kneeling figure seems to try to free itself from its bonds with all its strength. Very rare in this quality!
