The Victoria & Albert Museum
This handsome Fifteenth Century bronze figure heralds from Germany and takes the form of a fool or jester on a triangular molded pedestal adorned with three apes, of course, and resting on three lions.
But, this isn’t just a sculpture. He’s a useful fool. You see, with his extended left hand, he would support a candle which would rest upon his shoulder as he looked up at the flickering light.
