Lalique Athlete is reminiscent of the antique ideal of a complete human being, skilled in arts but also in fighting and in action. In the Greek art, the figure of the athlete not only epitomizes the beauty of the bodies, a present from the gods, but also a visible expression of wisdom and virtue.
In René Lalique's version of the athlete, the masculine nude in clear satin-finished crystal exhumes the ancient ideal of a complete being, skilled in the arts but also in action and demonstrates the extraordinary ability of Lalique Crystals master glassmakers to put their traditional know how at the service of creation and emotion.
