The original of the reproduction on the left builds the reputation of the Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. "Jason with the Golden Fleece" was produced in the years 1802 and 1803. The esthetic of the nude figure is inspired by the spear-bearer "Doryphoros". With his larger-than-life statue Thorvaldsen entered the public arena in a spectacular way. Jason is presented in sophisticated balance and heroic nudity, with helmeted head and slung sword he holds on his left arm the Golden Fleece. In his right hand he holds a long spear. The sculpture expresses the gist of the Ancient Greek myth of Jason recounted by the Alexandrian poet Apollonius of Rhodes, about a hero who traveled on a voyage in search of the Golden Fleece in an attempt to help his father recover his kingdom from King Pelias.

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?
