"Miner Swing"

Hi everybody…
One of my best collectible is this miner in bronze wich is probably dated from the 30's. I have not really informations about this nice work of art. An antique dealer told me that statue was manufactured to thank the mine director at the end of his career.  Living in the west south of France where mines were closed in the 80's, this nice art deco style antiquity is probably one witness of an old hardwork period !
Of course Mister django reinhardt has never been a miner but prefered to play "minor" his swing !!!!!
