Some Things You Might Not Know About Bronze Statues

Jul 22, 2008
Bronze statues are found in almost every city in the world. Whether the statues are inside museums and art galleries or displayed publicly outside, you will find that this is a fascinating and exquisite art form. Many cities even have some of their best public landmarks made from bronze. These statues are also perfect for outdoor and indoor decoration in your home.

There are quite a few statues that have notoriety the world over. Some of the more famous bronze statues are the Jete in Westminster London, Richard the Lionheart in London, and Eros Bendato in Krakow, Poland.

Making this type of statue is highly skilled work, so there are really just a handful of sculptors that work exclusively in bronze around the world. There are even less who have made large scale statues. There are a few different ways that sculptors make bronze statues, including investment casting, sand casting, and centrifugal casting. All of these processes can take months or years to complete a single bronze statue of a relatively large size.

In order to prepare for a large casting, such as an outdoor statue, an artist will work with many different small scale model castings first. This is how the proportions of the statue are determined. Throughout the process, the models get larger and larger to work on the final details on the statue. A full scale model may even be made before the bronze is cast so that everyone will be able to see exactly what the finished products will look like.

Bronze statues for indoor and outdoor decoration are more popular than some may think. There are many different styles, shapes, and sizes of statues for the home. In many cases, you can get a lovely statue for your home for just a few hundred dollars. And there are more than just statues that are made from bronze. You can also find fountains, mailboxes, tables, benches, and urns. Picking out any of these will make your home lovely and look more elegant.

Bronze is a durable metal and will withstand all weather conditions. You will be able to see that ten or fifteen years down the road, your outdoor sculpture or table will look just like the day that you bought it. This is why many people are finding that bronze is a great look for their outdoor decor.

Having your own statue is just like being in your very own art gallery. You will have peace and tranquility with one of your favorite scenes depicted in bronze. For those who want to spend a lot more money, you can also have your own bronze sculpture cast. This is the perfect way to commemorate a special occasion for you or your family.

So if you have always admired bronze, just remember the time and effort that it takes to make just once medium sized sculpture. You will be inspired by all of the effort that goes into just one detailed sculpture.
