In close collaboration with the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (the French National Museum Council), Trudon introduces the busts of characters or symbols of the French History, a very precious theme for the company which used to be the Manufacture Royale de Cire.
Absolute authority: chin up, proud bust and a contemptuous attitude, the Sun King rules. Immortalized in a 7-meter high monumental sculpture by François Girardon (1699), the ‘Louis XIV à cheval’ took center stage at Place Vendôme before the statue was razed to the ground in 1792, during the French revolution. Today a resident of the Musée du Louvre, the bust still stands tall, reproduced in a smaller scale. An iconic royal figure and messenger of “French art”, Louis XIV now looks over Cire Trudon’s collection of busts.
Please note: Trudon busts are decorative objects, that are not meant to be burnt.
