This piece depicts a golfer in the finishing position after taking his drive. The drive or full swing movement is used on the teeing ground and fairway, typically with a wood or long iron, to achieve the maximum distance with the club. Like the rest of Lladro pieces dedicated to sports, this piece also captures the values of personal self-improvement, sportsmanship and fair play. It makes a great gift for golfers and also the perfect trophy for a golf tournament.
This is a glazed version of a matte white porcelain piece launched in the Fall of 2014. Lladro maintains the strength of its sculptural forms with each detail of the carefully rendered clothes.
The incorporation of color in a modern and up-to-date way produces a totally contemporary piece. The shoes, the striped polo-shirt and the belt, have been meticulously reproduced to ensure a scene that seems as if he has come straight from a green. 17.75in H x 10.25in L
