This study, after the antique is mid 19th century.
The Crouching Venus has been excavated on numerous different Roman sites, in Italy and in France. There are slightly differing versions. But one thing that never changes is the fact that the study captures Venus at he bath, startled, and she very often is depicted with her arm slightly raised to cover her breasts.
She has been an inspiration to sculptures and artists for centuries.
There are, among others, examples in The Louvre Paris, The Uffizi in Florence and The British Museum has an example.
She is Hellenistic in style and has influenced so many artists such as Rubens who painted an 'Allegory' 1612-13, after he saw The Lely Venus then in The Gonzaga collection at mantua.
This example bears its foundry seal.

The Instruments being played by the artist on the right is known as an Askaulus combining the greek words aulos and askos, which is similar to a bagpipe. It was known in Italy around the second century BC and was said to humm or buzz, like a wasp.

He started in his artistic as a sculptor by making interesting marble artworks. In the late 1930s he launched a ceramic workshop with his son Ranieri, called "C.A.P.E.F." (Professor Eugenio Pattarino Artistic Ceramics), located at the address Via Squarcialupi 2 in Florence.

I presume this large Bronze sculptor is Abraham and The Sacrificial RAM and may have been a sculpture he was working on just before his death.
It is solid bronze and is approximately 56cm high.
Sean Rice understood the human figure and its anatamony and so was able to stretch every sinew in this interpretation.
And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
