Jester is a medium size bronze sculpture portrayed in a swirling dance. His costume swirls as he twirls around in merriment. A grand smile on his face. The details are quite amazing and the bits of of bronze cloth on his boots and regalia are all put on in the wax stage then vented carefully in order to be cast.
Jesters, fools and buffoons have a long history in many cultures. In our modern culture one can think of think of the class fool in our school classes. That person who seems to always have the ability to make the whole class laugh. Of course there are the modern day comedians as well. In the Tarot cards used for foretelling the future the Fool is a Major Arcana card.
