This fancy sculpture with the title "Archangel with large hat" is made of 100% bronze and signed by Botero. The expression of the shape is typical for Botero. The "Archangel with large hat" is an image of a very bulky archangel standing on top of a small church. He is holding a sword in his right hand and a shield in his left hand. His torso is protected by a suit of armor and his head is covered with a hat. The sculpture of the chubby "Archangel with large hat" is fixed on a nice marble base. The outlandish shape of the archangel makes this sculpture very impressive. The "Archangel with large hat" was made by the lost wax casting. It took about 40 different steps to finish this sculpture. But we have observed every single step to ensure the high quality of this product. As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

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.
