Inspired by a sculpture of Napoleon I by Antoine Denis Chaudet (1763-1810), each replica is a work of art in itself.

A bust full of history and symbols

This Napoleon as Caesar or Hermes is inspired by the Roman tradition representing with a braided laurel wreath, the generals having defeated the enemies of Rome.

The appearance of laurels on the bust of the Emperor embodies the victorious, glorious and peacemaking man both on a military and civil level while symbolizing his continuity with the tradition of the Roman and Carolingian empires of Charlemagne.

It is in this logic that Chaudet represented Napoleon.

We selected this model because it fully represents and symbolizes an era in French history about which we are passionate.

Inspired by ancient Rome and Greek philosophy, France, as well as the intellectual and artistic elites of the time, needed new cultural references to place the emerging power in the continuity of the history of our country. This allowed the new power to free itself from the royal narrative upon the death of Louis XVI.

Thus emerges neo-classicism with a new generation of artists including Jacques-Louis David who will become the most famous of the Emperor's painters and whose painting of the Coronation, imbued with Roman symbolism, perfectly embodies continuity and glory of the new empire.

Noble and traditional manufacturing 

Each bust is a true little masterpiece, designed, molded and patinated by hand by our artisans. 

The reconstituted stone used by our master craftsman allows for faithful reproduction quality while maintaining a density comparable to that of marble, transferring to our busts a weight and exceptional durability much superior to creations molded in plaster or low-end resin.

We chose this material to convey to you our love of quality and beauty. More durable and more resistant, this noble material will guarantee you to leave to those who follow you a work which will carry high the Napoleonic honor.

French design, creation and manufacturing: 100% Made in France!
