"L'Age d'Airain" is a bronze statue by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. It was created in 1880-1881 and is part of the larger group of sculptures known as "The Burghers of Calais". The sculpture depicts a naked man, who is represented as a metaphor for the resistance of matter and the power of life. A young Belgian soldier, Auguste Ney, posed for this work stripped of any attribute allowing the subject to be identified. The figure is characterized by its powerful and muscular anatomy, which is expressive of energy, force and vitality. Produced in Brussels, this figure already shows all the mastery of the sculptor, his attention to living nature in attitude and modelling. It was exhibited at the Cercle Artistique de Bruxelles in 1877, untitled, then at the Salon, in Paris, under the name L' ge d'airain, where it caused a scandal.
