This is a patinated plaster maquette for the bronze statue of the Afonso Albuquerque memorial by Antonio Augusto da Costa Motta exhibited at the Gulbenkian Museum. It  stands beside the model for the column of the monument. This was a wonderful discovery, as the memorial, which was completed in 1901, is so tall that one cant fully appreciate the details of the figure from the ground.
