Edouard Fraisse large Art Deco bronze celebration of flight plaque

This is a fantastic plaque. It depicts and celebrates flight depicting a modern day Icarus naked except for a flight helmet & goggles with a wing strapped to his outstretched arms soaring above the world. The plaque is signed "E Fraisse - Demy" confirming that this was a collaboration with Henri Demey..

The reverse has "c 23" painted in red on the reverse but I would not attach any great significance to that.

Approximate dimensions:
Weight: 1lb 12.7ozs - 814gms
Diameter: 8.66ins - 22cms
