Greek Hero Perseus Holding the Head of Medusa Bronze Sculpture Statue on Marble Base 15" x 12"
Total Dimensions: Height 15'' x Width 12'' Approximate Weight: 12 LBS Original Reproduction: OriginalCellini?s bronze sculpture of Perseus Beheading the Medusa was the defining masterpiece of the Florentine sculptor?s career. Much has been written about it but, of particular interest, is Michael Cole?s 1999 article, ?Cellini?s Blood?, in which he relates how this was the first major bronze sculpture cast in Florence for half a century.1 The story goes that as Perseus slit the Medusa?s neck, the winged horse Pegasus sprang from her blood and flew up to Zeus in the heavens, thus becoming a symbol for poetic inspiration. In that sense the gushing blood, a notably new element in Cellini?s conception, symbolizes creation and the creative process. The bronze sculpture was molded using the ancient method of lost-wax casting and finished with a brown patina tarnish. The sculpture is mounted upon a black variegated marble base with the artist Aldo Vitaleh signature.
I bought this bronze recently.it is beautiful I am really pleased with it and would recommend the company as it was delivered in a very short time and in perfect condition.
The bronze Pieta is an extra ordinary replica of the original sculpture which I have observed at St. Peter's Basical at the Vaticn in Rome. It is the centerpiece of my bronze collection, and it's 15"hieght is t ruly awe inspiring. At the original price it was a fair to good price. At the 50% sale price I considered it an amazing bargain...
Excellent sculptures for excellent price ! Thank you
Great service and a great product.
Very good piece of art
What a sculpture it looks like the Stag is in my house. I love it.
As far as weight, I meant to say, "NOT debilitatingly so"
I absolutely love this piece, it sits on display prominently in my home. It's quality is top notch, and ofcourse very heavy as it's bronze. But debilitating so. Packaging as always couldn't have been better. Every piece I've ever purchased from bronzhaus has always been well packaged and high quality.
Thank you to the artist aswell. I own several of their pieces.
I’m very pleased with details
Pose and quality
This is a beautiful work of art. I did have a problem, however. The sculpture was received upside down because no marking on the box to keep any side up. Three of the wings of the eagle on the left side facing were bent inward and out of alignment with the rest of the wings. I had to straighten them using blocks and a very large c-clamp to move the wings without cracking. I didn't refuse the delivery because it wasn't the carrier's fault that it was received in this condition. The packaging is otherwise great to try to protect the sculpture. Overall, I'm pleased it arrived in one piece and looks great after repair!
I just received the Indian Eagle sculpture...it is breathtaking. The detail and elegance of the piece surpasses my expectation. I hope to purchase the companion piece in the very near future.
An absolutely beautiful piece of art that truly makes me happy! As a retired Colonel in the USAF, the Eagle is a symbol of my service, and having this one just feels right - great work, great packaging, and fast shipment.
I like it alot, I wish you had a larger version of this.
It's a very nice dragon sculpture. Got it for my daughter's birthday. I think she'll love it.
Love this beautiful...and beautifully made 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.
