Introducing the renowned masterpiece, "Descending Night," expertly crafted by the esteemed German sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman. This captivating sculpture portrays a stunning nude angel in all her ethereal beauty. With a graceful tilt of her head, she delicately runs her fingers through her hair, which flows down her back in gentle, cascading waves. Every detail has been meticulously crafted, from the exquisite wings that span wide behind her to the curvaceous and feminine lines that define her form, celebrating the essence of womanhood. As a testament to its authenticity, this sculpture proudly bears the signature of A.A. Weinman. Originally designed as fountain figures for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, "Descending Night" and its companion piece, "Rising Day," captivated audiences with their timeless elegance. Following the exhibition, Weinman reproduced both works in two sizes, offering collectors the opportunity to cherish these masterpieces in their own spaces. One size measures approximately 24 inches tall, while the other measures approximately 57 inches. Adolph A. Weinman's immense talent and contributions to the world of sculpture were widely recognized during his lifetime. He received numerous awards, including the Fine Arts Medal of the American Institute of Architects in 1930, the Honorary Presidency and Medal of Honor of the National Sculpture Society in 1948, and the Gold Medal from prestigious institutions such as the Architectural League of New York (1913), Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (1924), and the National Academy of Design (1945). Serving as the president of the National Sculpture Society from 1928 to 1931, Weinman also held esteemed positions in the New York City Art Commission (1924-1928) and the National Commission of Fine Arts (1928-1932). Elected as a full member of the National Academy of Design in 1911, he was also a member of the American Numismatic Society and the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Adolph A. Weinman's remarkable career brought honor not only to himself but also to his adopted country. He passed away on August 8, 1952, in Port Chester, New York, leaving behind an enduring legacy of artistic brilliance and profound contributions to the world of sculpture.

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.
