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. This boar would be an excellent addition to any desk or mantle and would be a great conversation starter! He walks through the bushes and sniffs the dirt ground, trying to pick up the scent of prey. His lowers his large round snout to the ground. His eyes narrow and his hunting skills are sparked. His large ears perk up. He can smell something in the distance. If it is you, it would be best to start running. Through careful detailing you can feel his coarse rough hair. 100% bronze and handmade, this dark brown patina sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and signed by the artist Chemin.

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.
