The growing popularity of bronze sculptures, handmade with all the charms of antiquity and uniqueness are durable art pieces. Different shapes both contemporary and traditional portrayal of animals, nature, and wall- art and cast bronze decorative artifacts are in demand. It is said sculpting with this metal originated in China and carried forward by Greek sculptors while the Egyptians used to make small statutes and Greeks made life like statutes, decorative art, vessels and weapons.

As an alloy of copper and tin, it is harder than copper, durable, resistant to corrosion and melts easily. Historical facts state that due to wars and intense looting from the defeated kingdoms, huge amounts of bronze statues and artifacts were taken away, melted to make arms or statues by the victorious army. The sculptures of the Greek periods are very rare as the artifacts were melted down for other purposes.

However, it has always remained the popular metal as far as decorative statutes, candle stands and sculpture are created. It may be hammered, cast and carved with equal ease while it flows uniformly into a mold when heated under optimum temperatures. The outdoor decorative statues are usually preferred to be crafted in bronze due to durability, withstand extreme temperatures and have anti rust features.

To judge the superiority of a bronze sculpture may be based on the process used to create the art work and the skill of the artist. The theme can vary from wildlife, historic scenes to simple depiction of everyday life. The flow, finish and look depend on the inherent taste and experience of the artist. Sculptures can range in size and bulk depending upon your requirements.

Bronze sculptures are often copied or cast as poor fakes, so better beware of impersonators and buy from reputed sources. There are many artists and importers of bronze carvings who are professionals in their field. With high reliability and good customer policies, internet stores selling bronze statutes and sculptures are a good way to add to your collection exquisite pieces from different parts of the world.

The work and theme on sculptures differ from artist to artist and from country to country. Each country has its own designs, traditional arts and bronze sculptures and castings vary according to regions. Collectors sculptures have a varied collection of artifacts, collected over a period of time while the Internet stores have made browsing and ordering bronze sculptures easy and fun.
