Detailed description

Replica "Cherub from the Fugger Chapel V" (c. 1530), cast stone antique finish

In 1509, Jakob Fugger endowed the Fugger Chapel in St. Anna's Church in Augsburg, a project planned by Albrecht Dürer. It is the first construction north of the Alps to be imbued with the spirit of humanism. The Fugger brothers' burial chapel, built until 1512, magnificently decorated in the following years and consecrated in 1518, was the splendid prelude to the Renaissance in Germany and one of its high points. Apart from Albrecht Dürer, some of the most important German artists of the Renaissance were involved in its creation. Unique and full of charm are the cherubs that adorn the balustrade of the Fugger Chapel and "guard" the Fugger burial place.

To mark the 500th anniversary of the foundation of the Fugger Chapel in St. Anna, we at ars mundi, in cooperation with the House of Fugger, can now exclusively and for the first time ever offer you the famous cherubs as authentic, slightly scaled-down museum replicas! Each copy is carefully hand-cast in polymer cast stone and patinated to an antique finish.

Cherub from the Fugger Chapel V, around 1530: size 32 x 29 x 17.5 cm (w/h/d), weight 10 kg.
