Made using lost wax casting. Lost-wax casting (also called "investment casting", "precision casting") is the process by which a duplicate metal sculpture (often silver, gold, brass or bronze) is cast from an original sculpture. Dependent on the sculptor's skills, intricate works can be achieved by this method. Though the process today varies from foundry to foundry, the steps used in casting small bronze sculptures are fairly standardized. Variations of the process include: "lost mould", which recognizes that materials other than wax can be used (such as: tallow, resin, tar, and textile); and "waste wax process" (or "waste mould casting"), because the mould is destroyed to remove the cast item. Good condition, small pores and imperfection caused by the production process. Size : 32" inch (81 cm) height x 15" inch (38 cm) wide x 9 inch (23 cm) thick.
