Beautiful large antique French wall panel made of hand carved walnut wood, dating to the late 19th century. Featuring deep bas relief carvings and Neo-Renaissance style motifs. To the center is an oval medallion with a scene of the Greek goddess Athena holding a spear and olive branch. Carved in exquisite detail. She is depicted standing on the battlefield among fallen shields and banners. Framed by stylized foliage and decorative elements. A pair of carved caryatids flank the sides of the panel. Surmounted by a pediment with gadroon edging, rosette and scalloped shell details. Fantastic color and patina. In overall good antique condition with general wear commensurate with age and use. There is an age-related crack in the center. There are two nicks in the decorative detail, one located on the trim framing the central oval medallion and one on the upper right volute. Measures 27 1/8" height x 19 1/8" wide x 1 1/4" deep.
