At one time, boars were respected as fierce and brave creatures. Even though they don't appear dangerous in size and demeanor, they should not be underestimated. If surprised or concerned, a boar can and will defend itself and its young with intense vigor. The male lowers its head, charges, and then slashes upward with his tusks. The female, whose tusks are not visible, charges with her head up, mouth wide, and bites. Their tusks continuously grow and serve as tools and as weapons. It would certainly be wise to not be on the receiving end of the charge of a wild boar. In most cultures, boars are usually regarded as a sacred animal. The boar is one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac and is associated with fertility and virility. At one point during the Persian Empire, people would add the adjective "Boraz (Goraz)" (meaning boar) to the end of someone's name to show their bravery and courage. This boar would be an excellent addition to any desk or mantle and would be a great conversation starter! It is made of 100% pure bronze with a dark brown patina and is set on a black marble base. The sculpture is also signed by Barye and holds a stamp from the European Bronze Finery.

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.

Do you do custom work?

Custom work is available in some cases.  Please contact us with the details of the job.

Can I sell you one of my own pieces?

Unfortunately, we do not buy pieces from the public.  To ensure the highest quality, we only sell brand new pieces that we commission ourselves, or buy directly from artists and manufacturers we know and trust.
