Cyrus the Great (580-529 BCE), a towering figure of history of mankind, was the first king in the world to be referred to as "The Great," was son of Cambyses the elder, the vessel Persian king of the Median Empire called Anšan and Mandana the Median princess, daughter of Astyages. His ancestors of the Achaemenid Dynasty for several generations had ruled the Persian kingdom of Anshan, in what is now Khuzestan province, in southwestern Iran. His name "Cyrus" (a transliteration of the Greek Kυρoς) is the Greek version of the Persian Koroush or Khorvash meaning: "Like the sun" in Persian khour means "sun" and vash is a suffix of similarity. He is cast using the ancient old "Lost Wax Method" stained in brown patina. 100% handmade and 100% bronze.

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?
