This is an elegant sculpture of an Egyptian pharaoh cat. It is believed that the house cat was first domesticated over 5,000 years ago in the valley of the Nile. When the people of Egypt chose to settle, they grew crops, which were often fed on by vermin. The people really grew to love the cats, and eventually cats became the property of divine Pharaoh. They were worshiped, and even buried alongside their masters. Since then cats have become domesticated all over the world, tied back to the roots of the African Wildcat. This cat wears a collar of ancient hieroglyphic letters to help protect it from evil and has its head slightly tilted to the left and looking downward, its long tail wrapping around it. The symmetry lines and details on this peace are beautiful and also delivers a calming effect on a bystander as most cats do. Handmade of 100% bronze and cast using the "Lost Wax Method", it has a two tone brown patina. Sits on a solid black marble base and is signed Thomas.

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.
