In tribute to the work of her grandfather, Julie Bazin is producing numbered bronze casts of Francois Bazin's most famous hood ornaments. These pieces, originally car mascots, stand on their own as fine Art Deco sculptures.
They are cast by French art foundries which have earned the ‘Living Heritage Enterprises’ label. François Bazin was a celebrated aviator and sculptor in the 1920's. He was raised in Chile, where his parents, (both copper engravers) taught at an art school in Santiago. Bazin studied at the Arts Décoratifs and the École Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris.
Bazin created radiator ornaments for Hispano Suiza, Citroen, Isotta Frachini, Latel and more.    Note: We plan to run an expanded story on this work in a later issue.

Car collectors worldwide dream of competing at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where the famed 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links is the stage and the rolling Pacific Ocean serves as backdrop. Begun in 1950, this concours is the top-ranking collector car competition in the world. It is also the event to which most other modern concours now trace their roots. Initially modeled on the early European concours that showcased new cars, the Pebble Beach Concours shifted its focus to collector cars in 1955.
