Val d'Osne Foundry - Beautiful pair of statues with Indians made of cast iron

This beautiful pair of statues representing two Native American people was made by the Val d’Osne Foundry in the late 19th century. Both the man and the woman hold a fan composed of feathers in one hand and a stick – the base of a torch – in the other hand. These sculptures illustrate a form of exoticism through a Western style. They are very unique as they illustrate the increasing interest of French people for the United States and the collective imagery of the New World in the 19th century.
The Val d’Osne Foundry is an art foundry created in 1835 by Jean Pierre Victor André, inventor of cast iron ornament. During the 19th century, the company grew and became the most important French society in art cast iron. It won several medals at exhibitions of products from French industry and at World Fairs as in Paris in 1878. Collaborations with the greatest artists of the century such as Carrier-Belleuse, Mathurin Moreau, Pradier and Eugène Piat contributed to the reputation of the company.
