Bust of Cosmonaut Yury Gagarin, 1962.

In Silumin alloy with black finish imitating cast iron. Measures 5 1/4" in height, 3" x 3 3/4" at the base. Shows the world's first cosmonaut immediately after landing, still in his space suit but without the helmet. His space suit is not actually shown but is only suggested by the "CCCP" lettering. Nevertheless, everyone has seen photos of Gagarin in a space suit, the impression created by the artist is that he's wearing a suit here! There is a foundry mark on the back of the base.

Excellent condition with none of the bumps or dings that frequently appear on silumin busts,

Excellent condition with none of the bumps or dings that frequently appear on silumin busts, particularly ones in homes with children or pets. There are only a couple of very minor scuffs to the black paint, not detractive.
