The statue itself features a captivating two-toned patina, skillfully blending dark hues with an antique rustic green to enhance its intricate detailing and create an authentic aged effect. This remarkable sculpture depicts a powerful she-wolf in a resolute standing position, proudly guarding two infants. The artist has meticulously crafted the piece, emphasizing a voluminous mane around the wolf's neck and spine while highlighting her pronounced ribs and alert upright ears. The she-wolf's unwavering presence serves as a shield, protecting the boys from harm. Romulus and Ramus, the two infants nestled under her watchful gaze, are portrayed in a touching manner. One of the boys is depicted sitting with his palms up beneath her breasts, his mouth positioned just below her nipple. The other child kneels, also with upturned palms. Together, they exude a sense of joy, reveling in the nourishment provided to them. This remarkable sculpture is elegantly presented on a square slab of bronze, providing a stable base. The sculpture's significance is further enhanced by an exquisite gold engraving of the names Romulus and Ramus on its surface. Created using the renowned Lost Wax Method, this sculpture boasts a stunning two-tone patina, elevating its visual appeal and artistic value.
