German Jugendstil bronze sculpture of Judith holding her sword and the head of Holofernes, made by German sculptor and medallist Frist Christ (1866-1906). The figure of Judith is standing on a hexagonal Egyptian revival marble base with carved hieroglyphs and rams heads. Made in Germany in 1901, the piece is signed and dated on the base of the bronze. In great antique condition with age-appropriate wear and some old repair work, and one of the sun discs atop the rams heads missing.
Fritz Christ studied at the Munich Academy under Windnmann and later on exhibited his works in Paris, Copenhagen, Chicago, and Munich.
