    Nice and interesting sculpt ! Hope it will be a commercial item!(y)
    But be careful Alexander Dumas (Father) , in the the French culture is the writer how wrote "the three Musketeers".
    The Napoleon's General was Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie, also known as Alexandre Dumas, (25 March 1762 – 26 February 1806)

    Dumas Fils (Son) wrote " La dame aux Camelias"
    Quite hard there's in fact 3 Alexandre Dumas !
    One Général, 2 famous writers (In France).

    His bronze statue.
    A bronze statue erected in his likeness Place Malesherbes in Paris in 1890, never opened, remained veiled until 1913. Before the Nazis founded thirty years later to recover the metal. Glory, as Borges says, is also a form of forgetting.
