Victory and Progress Sculpture

Back on the 6th July 2006 Chris Miller at Mountshang did a post on the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ the Rolls Royce bonnet sculpture. This reminded me of our early encounter.

Emil Gaudissard 1872- 1956 (Allegory of Victory and Progress) includes a relief of a horse and cart/carriage on the back. (It seems that girls have always been needed to sell cars, or is it that girls are attracted to fast cars as much as we chaps are!)

Not my favorite sculpture -- but I can well imagine finding it proudly displayed at Toad Hall.

The car is exactly what you would find out side Toad Hall Chris, and I wouldn’t mind one myself (the car too!)

Interesting that Toads in real life enjoy motor vehicles; see next post.
