Description

Filmdom's most famous fictional boxing match comes to the three dimensional realm, with this 1979 United Artists Rocky Balboa vs. Apollo Creed statue. Created by sculptor/artist Giovanni Schoeman, this 10-1/2 x 12 x 6-1/4" boxing figural is a realistic representation of the celebrated "Rocky" film combatants. A 1979 dated United Artists copyright is impressed in one short side of the 3/4" high base; while the opposite short side bears a 1979 copyright, next to Giovanni Schoeman's name. The top of the base is impressed with an 8-ray star at center, and the signatures of actors Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) and Carl Weathers (Apollo) are impressed near the corners, behind their corresponding figures. Finished in bronze, this plaster cast creation has multiple small chips along the edge of the base, and at various locations on the two fighting figures, and Rocky's left foot is cracked and has been repaired. This impressive representation is exacting in detail, right down to the "Italian Stallion" horses seen in raised design on the uppers of Rocky's shoes. Despite the moderate wear, this vintage piece retains abundant display appeal.
