Kronos is the son of Ouranos and Gaea, the youngest of the Titans. Cronos overthrew his father, with the help of his mother, and became the supreme ruler of the universe. He then married Rhea, his sister, who gave birth to the great Gods. To prevent the reocurrence of his father's fate, he swallowed each of his children as they were born. However, when his last son, Zeus, was born, Rhea hid the infant on the island of Crete, and instead gave Kronos a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes. When Zeus became old enough, he challenged his father, and forced him to vomit up his siblings Poseidon, Hades, Demeter, Hera and Hestia. The Cyclopse, who were freed by Zeus, fashioned the famous thunderbolts and lightning for Zeus as a sign of gratitude. These weapons were instrumental in the defeat of the Titans (in a battle known as teh Titanomachy) by Zeus and his siblings.100% bronze and handmade. This sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" in a brown patina. It is mounted on a oval black marble base and is signed by artist Milo.

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.
